Forever a Gull Challenge
The Endicott Athletics Department and The Gull Club are proud to congratulate the men's volleyball program on winning the 2016 Forever A Gull Challenge, which is designed to raise funds for Endicott's athletic programs through philanthropic support from our alumnae/i student-athletes.
The men's volleyball program saw a record breaking 53.3-percent of its alumni participate to win its second Forever A Gull Challenge (2014). By winning the Forever A Gull Challenge, the men's volleyball program will be awarded $2,500 in additional team funding from our generous sponsor, Super Sub.
"I can't begin to thank our alumni enough for all of the support they have shown our program in recent years," stated Endicott men's volleyball head coach George Chapell '08. "The pride they take in seeing our team succeed and the support they provide whether it be monetarily, in the stands, or on social media, continues to help elevate our program. Winning the Forever a Gull Challenge lets our current roster see that they are a part of something special for their entire lives."
The 2016 Forever A Gull Challenge saw participation more than double in comparison to last year's numbers thanks to a supportive Endicott alumnae/i base. During last year's challenge, 69 gifts were made for a total of $3,172, while this year's numbers more than doubled to 157 gifts for a total of $6,657. The funds that were raised will directly benefit current Endicott student-athletes and the entire athletic department.
"On behalf of the Endicott Athletics Department and The Gull Club, I would like to thank all of our loyal supporters for their generosity," said Endicott's Assistant Director of Athletic Giving John Halsey '12. "The men's volleyball program finishing with over 50% alumni participation is an incredible accomplishment, and seeing each of our varsity and club teams improve upon their previous levels of alumni support was truly special. Thanks to you, we have once again raised the bar in our support of Endicott Athletics and our student-athletes."
