The Marching Blazers are hard at work preparing for one of the most highly anticipated moments in UAB history. With #TheReturn of UAB Football, our band will not only sound our best—we will look our best when the UAB Blazers take on the Alabama A&M Bulldogs at Legion Field on Saturday, September 2, 2017.

Thanks to the generosity of our alumni and friends, we’ve raised more than $50,000 toward our goal of $70,000 to fund new uniforms for the Marching Blazers. To be ready for #TheReturn, we need to hit our goal by midnight on March 31.

What happens when you give?

  • Everyone who makes a gift will receive a personal thank-you from the UAB Marching Blazers.

  • The first 20 people to make a gift of $100 to $249 will receive a retired UAB shako and plume—that’s the hat with the feather on top.

  • The first 10 people to make a gift of $250 or more will receive a retired UAB band uniform jacket.

  • The first person to make a gift of $1,000 or more will receive a handcrafted pillow made from a retired UAB uniform jacket.
