Join physical education instructor Casey Molifua '15/MAT '17 and assistant professor of art Dr. Brian Corr '99 on their next challenge! The duo will run 1.1 miles every hour on the hour April 21-22, 2023 — and you can join in by making a gift to grow the Mikaelah Molifua Memorial Scholarship and/or running a mile or two in Mik's memory.

    Mik’s scholarship benefits Hastings College student-athletes with financial need and an exceptional spirit and enthusiasm for the Broncos. Special consideration is given to students facing health challenges.

    The goal for #MilesForMik is to grow the scholarship by $10,000 — and if you make a gift of $25 or more, we'll send you a commemorative Miles for Mik t-shirt!

    • 8:00 to 11:00 am — Howdy Mae’s Coffee in front of the Gray Center
    • 11:00 am to 1:00 pm — Dre's Food Truck in front of the Gray Center
    • 5:00 to 8:00 pm — A gathering at Steeple Brewing (717 W 1st St., Hastings)

    About Mikaelah

    Few have worn Hastings College Crimson with as much energy, enthusiasm and positivity as Mikaelah Molifua.
     
    When the Lincoln North Star graduate arrived on campus as a first-year student, she’d already defeated Stage IV cancer and was ready to channel her electric spirit into all things Bronco-related. As she earned her undergraduate degree in English education, she competed for the Bronco Cheer and Softball teams, served as a Resident Assistant in Babcock Hall, and led Alpha Delta Alpha sorority. In 2014, she even earned the title Ms. Bronco in the annual campus talent competition.
     
    After graduating in 2017, Mikaelah remained on campus to earn a Master of Arts in Teaching degree with a physical education endorsement. She also became head coach for the Bronco Cheer and Crimson Spirit Dance teams.
     
    That’s when cancer returned.
     
    Always positive, Mikaelah taught the Hastings College family to be courageous and Molifua Strong in the face of adversity. She died on June 26, 2020.
