Benefiting SPECIAL OLYMPICS NORTH CAROLINA

Duke MBA Games – April 7-8, 2017

Help support this year’s MBA Games by donating online.  All funds raised directly benefit Special Olympics North Carolina (SONC) in support of local training and competitions, outreach to athletes, and much more.

What is Duke’s MBA Games Weekend?  Every year, teams from Duke’s Graduate Programs and from MBA programs across the country come to Durham to compete in a weekend of fun events alongside amazing Special Olympic athletes.  Teams of 6-10 students are partnered with 4-5 Special Olympic athletes to compete in games such as tug-of-war, knockout, relay races, and the infamous briefcase toss!  After a day of fun and games, students and athletes come together for a catered banquet and awards ceremony at Duke on Saturday evening.  All participants are sure to have fun, be inspired, and leave Duke with memories that will last a lifetime!

Why donate online?  Each team is challenged to raise money throughout the year.  All funds raised will be awarded points towards the team’s total weekend score – the more you raise, the closer you are to being crowned the MBA Games Champion!  In addition, as mentioned, all funds raised go directly to SONC.  Since its founding in 1989, MBA Games has donated over $2.4 million to SONC!

Help us exceed this year’s goal of $100,000 raised for SONC by giving today!
