LIGHT IT UP: GO JUMBOS!

#TuftsGivingTuesday is all about Jumbos coming together and making the magic happen.  Yes, we're all on the same team, but a little friendly competition never hurts!  So, here's what's in store for athletics this year:

 

Varsity Athletics Leaderboards.  Whether your team is in the Brown, Blue, or Jumbo Division, each varsity sport is competing for the most gifts made overall and the chance to earn $1,000 for the winning team.

 

Specific Varsity Team Challenges.  Anonymous donors are sponsoring challenges which will be earned by attaining the minimum number of gifts listed for the following teams: MW Swimming & Diving ($50,000 for 400 gifts), Field Hockey ($25,000 for 300 gifts), M Ice Hockey ($25,000 for 125 gifts), M Track & Field/Cross Country ($15,000 for 200 gifts), M Lacrosse ($10,000 for 350 gifts), and W Track & Field/Cross Country ($2,500-450 gifts).  

 

Club Sports Leaderboards.  Club teams are joining the fun this year.  Teams in both the Brown and Blue Divisions are vying for most gifts made overall and the chance to earn $500 for the winning team.

 

Jumbos Helping Jumbos Challenge.  Our student-athletes achieve their full potential and peak performance thanks to the strong support network available to them within athletics.  Sports Medicine, the Tufts Personalized Performance Program, and the Jumbo Athletics Enhancement Fund are all vital ways Tufts provides medical support, strength training, and broad support to the department. 150 gifts unlocks $500 in support of our behind-the-scenes team!
