Stair Climbing Challenge update

Posted: November 29th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: service | No Comments »

The Stair Climbing Challenge is over and our team, the Superwomen, did not win for most stairs or most money collected. We decided that our biggest contribution was in the way of team spirit. Here is a link to an article with our picture.

Yesterday I took part in another United Way fundraiser “Are you smarter than a Linguist?”. It turns out none of us were, as the Lingwits, the team from Linguistics, won the overall championship. I feel proud that our team, the Best of All Worlds, representing four different faculties, pulled together to make it to the semi-finals. All in the name of fun and fund raising.
