Fundraising Relay: A Race Down Memory Lane

Looking for a way to relive some of your favorite track & field memories while engaging in some friendly competition? Introducing the Spiked Shoe Club Fundraising Relay, where you recruit teammates from a cross country squad, relay or field competition to make a donation as a group. This is an opportunity to apply the strength of our connections with teammates to show support for today’s student athletes and tomorrow’s recruits.

The top three fundraising teams will earn prizes ranging from team gear to Men’s Basketball Tickets to a BIG EAST game during the 2010-2011 season.

Can those Penn Relays DMR teams from the 90s hold off the Cross Country squads of the 70s? Will the recent grads show that they’re in both superior physical and fundraising shape, or will the hammer throwers put us all to shame?

How to Play:
• Pick one of your most memorable XC race, relay or field event performance, e.g. Men’s 1997 Sprint Medley at Penn Relays, Men’s 1991 4x1500 M, Women’s 1986 NCAA 4X800, Women’s 5th Place NCAA Outdoor Team
• Contact your teammates and recruit them to contribute,
• Designate a captain (don’t be shy – this means you!) and let us know who is on your squad.
• Donate:
o HERE **Specify “Other”, and enter “SPIKED SHOE CLUB in “Special Designation” field
