It’s hard to get to the top and harder to stay there. Muhlenberg’s student-athletes are always striving to get to the top and stay there. They are dedicated to their sport, their team and their studies. That’s why they are asking for your support during Mule Madness. They need the financial support of those passionate about all that is good with Muhlenberg athletics. When you make a gift during Mule Madness from February 6 through February 10, you make a statement that Muhlenberg athletics is number one with you. Participation determines the winning team. Step Up, make a gift, and help lead your team to the winner’s circle!
The winning team will be named champion for the 2016-2017 season, have bragging rights for the remainder of the year and their team name will be engraved on the Mule Madness trophy on display in Memorial Hall.
Making a gift as a student-athlete is a great way to give back to the team you love to play on – and it will increase your team’s participation. If you’re a senior-athlete on a team and 100 percent of the seniors on your team make a gift to Mule Madness, your team can earn additional dollars through the D-III Challenge and sport challenges. Your gift will also count towards the senior participation goal for 2017. In addition, if 100 percent of your teammates (regardless of class year) make a gift, your team can earn an additional 25 points.
Of course! When you make your gift online, you will be asked to select from a drop-down box a team or teams you wish to support. If you make a gift by mail, please note the designation of your gift on the check.
Mule Madness kicks off Monday, February 6 and continues through Friday, February 10.
This is a cumulative participation challenge. The team with the highest points at the end of the competition will be named the "winner."
Yes, bonus points are awarded to the teams with the following qualifications:
• Touchdown – (5 points) Any alumni athletes, student-athletes or parents of current athletes who make a gift of $100 or more
• Slam Dunk – (3 points) Any alumni athletes, student-athletes or parents of current athletes who make a gift under $100
• Goal – (1 point) for friends of Muhlenberg who make a gift to any sport
*25 additional points will be awarded to any team who has 100% participation from their student-athletes.
We are counting all prior gifts this fund year (July 1, 2016 - February 5, 2017). Alumni athletes, student-athletes, and parents of current student-athletes who have already made a gift to the College were grandfathered in and reflected in the donor counts at the outset of the competition. Every gift made during Mule Madness adds bonus points to your team.
