Platform for change
She's one of the most celebrated Purdue women's basketball players, earning Big Ten awards and setting school records. But what is most remarkable about Courtney Moses is her leadership off the court and her commitment to helping others.
"As an athlete, you have such a big platform," she says. "I wanted to use mine to the best of the ability I've been blessed with — and leave a mark that’s there for years to come."
Courtney joined with other Purdue student-athletes to create Boiler-Maker-Wish, a Boilermaker version of Make-A-Wish. The program grants Purdue sports-themed wishes to local kids living with a disability or hardship. The project has since granted wishes to five children.
