Support the Patti and Allan Herbert Wellness Center with a brick on the the Love Bridge or with an online donation.

Patti, B.B.A. ‘57, and Allan Herbert, B.B.A. ‘55, M.B.A. ‘58, who met during their first week at UM and fell in love, have established an endowment for the “Canes Health Assessment and Motivation Program” (CHAMP). In recognition of their gift, the bridge in front of the Herbert Wellness Center was named the “Love Bridge” to commemorate their love for the University and for each other.

To raise funds for the CHAMP endowment, the Herbert Wellness Center sells bricks that make up the bridge. For a minimum $500 donation, you can purchase a brick to commemorate a special event, acknowledge a loved one, or just permanently show your love for UM. Maybe you’re just looking for a unique and fun way to give a gift. If so, complete the order form and mail it to the Herbert Wellness Center with your donation. If you are not sure what to put on your brick, take a look at what other people wrote for some inspiration.
