For those of you who haven't heard of Challenge 4 Charity yet during your UCLA Anderson research... here's the logo:
and here's an official blurb about what the organization is:"UCLA Anderson’s Challenge for Charity (C4C) is the largest charitable organization at the Anderson School of Management. Last year, Anderson C4C raised $100,000 and volunteered over 5,000 hours for its three select charities: Special Olympics, Junior Achievement, and Project ECHO. UCLA Anderson is one of nine West coast business schools in the MBA Challenge for Charity organization that competes annually for the coveted Golden Briefcase. The competition is comprised of fundraising, volunteerism, and the annual Sports Weekend hosted at Stanford University each April. Over the past 14 years, the organization has volunteered thousands of hours and donated over $5.2 million to its selected charities. We strive to help develop Anderson MBAs with a lifelong commitment to community involvement and social responsibility. Challenge for Charity has a 501(c)(3) non-profit standing."
Why do you need to know that information you might ask? Well, a big part of the Spring Quarter is the Sports Weekend at Stanford. To get people excited about it, the UCLA Anderson C4C directors recently organized the first annual Anderson C4C Winter Sports Day.
80-100 first and second year students took over the intramural fields at UCLA last Friday, Feb 1, to compete in dodgeball, soccer, ultimate frisbee, and flag football. There was nothing at stake but pride (and maybe some rumored second year scouting for first year athletic talent to join the C4C sports teams.)
Here's a few pictures from the event - and yes, it was a magnificent 72 degree, blue sky, sunny LA day.
