Several members of the University of Pittsburgh athletic department have donated a bunch of money to help defeat coronavirus.

According to Brett McMurphy, the families of football coach Pat Narduzzi, men’s basketball coach Jeff Capel, women’s coach Lance White and athletic director Heather Lyke donated a combined $500,000 to the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Vaccine Research to help find a vaccine.

This is a hell of a classy move from all the people involved here. They’re the faces of the university, especially Narduzzi and Capel, and they stepped up in a big way to help win the war against coronavirus.

We need to shine a light on as many stories like this as possible. During these dark times, we need to remember how great we can all be.

This is a perfect example of that fact.

That’s also a substantial amount of money. Raising half a million dollars in the war against coronavirus isn’t a joke at all. That’s a gigantic amount of money.

Hopefully, it’ll help us get a vaccine as fast as possible and lead to the return of sports.
