Support Muhlenberg Athletics February 8-17, 2019
WHAT IS MULE MADNESS?
It's hard to get to the top and even harder to stay there. Muhlenberg's student-athletes are always striving to do just that. They dedicate themselves to their sport, their team and their studies. February 8-17, three divisions of 15 Mule Madness teams compete to reach three goals: participation points, dollars raised and student-athlete participation. These teams count on participation from those passionate about Muhlenberg athletics. Our student-athletes need you to help them win. Step Up, make a gift, and help lead your team to victory!
Keep an eye on each team’s goal progress below. Each team has individual goals for student-athlete participation, point total and dollars raised. “How does the point system work?”

Academic and Athletic Excellence
Academic and athletic excellence defines the Mules, from academic honor roll selections to All Americans and Centennial Conference championships.
Fifteen teams will face off in a battle of the Mules. Who will be victorious? Don’t miss out—make your gift today!
Mule Madness kicks off Friday, February 8 and continues through Sunday, February 17.
All 15 teams were placed into three separate divisions. Each division will have a champion for the highest participation points and highest total dollars earned.
Participation points are awarded to the teams with the following qualifications:
• (5 points) - Any alumni-athletes, student-athletes or parents of current athletes who make a gift of $100 or more.
• (3 points) - Any alumni-athletes, student-athletes or parents of current athletes who make a gift under $100.
• (1 point) – Any friends of Muhlenberg who make a gift to any sport.
*25 additional bonus points will be awarded to any team who has 100% participation from their student-athletes.
These goals were determined by members of the annual giving staff and the athletic department. Each team has a student-athlete participation goal, a total participation points goal and a total dollars raised goal.
• Named champions for the 2018-2019 season
• Bragging rights for the remainder of the year
• Jerry Galgano D-III Challenge
• $500 from our Division Sponsor, Lehigh Valley Health Network
Making a gift as a student-athlete is a great way to give back to the team you love – and it will increase your team’s participation. If 100 percent of your team makes a gift to Mule Madness, your team can earn 25 bonus points and additional dollars through the D-III Challenge. For seniors, your gift will also count towards the Senior Class Campaign. Gifts under $25 are accepted by phone or in person.
Of course! When you make your gift online, you will be asked to select which team or teams you wish to support. If you make a gift by mail, please note the designation of your gift on the check.
We are counting all prior gifts this fund year (July 1, 2018 - February 8, 2019). 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 participation points and dollars to your team.
Make a gift and encourage others to make a gift! Share your team’s goal progress on all of your social networks. Keep checking our social media links for competition updates.
