Dear Roadrunner Nation,

Isn't it exciting? UTSA is bringing -- a beautiful, proud Roadrunner statue -- to the UTSA campus!

I have been destined to find a home where roadrunners are prized and I will be appreciated. As a school where Roadrunners roam and grow, UTSA seems like the perfect place.

For generations to come, UTSA students and graduates will gather around me to celebrate milestones. I will gracefully pose for group events. Graduating seniors will beam with pride as they snap a photo in cap and gown with me. Alumni will bring their families to see me during visits to campus.

I am proud that I will be an important part of the growing traditions at UTSA.

To make UTSA my new home, the university is raising $25,000 over the next few days. I hope you're as excited as I am that I will be coming home because your support is crucial. Here's how you can help me:

Make your gift now!
 Your gift will bring me home. All donors will be recognized on the Bring Rowdy Home website and will be kept up-to-date on the progress to build me a permanent nest.

Share my news! Encourage others to donate on social media. You'll be the envy of all your friends when you post pictures with me to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. #bringrowdyhome

I am looking forward to being a valued member of the UTSA community. It is possible with your loyal support!

Go 'Runners,

Iron Rowdy
UTSA's New Roadrunner Statue

P.S.: You can meet me at the Rowdy Pep Rally at 3 p.m. today, Friday, Sept. 6 on the Main Campus at the University Center Paseo, or… Come to the game Saturday, Sept. 7 at the Alamodome -- I will be in the Sunset Station area pre-gaming near the student and Alumni Association tailgate events.
