NEW STRETCH GOAL- $6,000
THANK YOU EVERYONE! We hit our initial goal of $5,000 with only 36 hours left in the campaign. We're adding an additional $1,000 for the remaining time in hopes of doing even more to celebrate Buggy 100. Any additional funds raised will go towards renting Starting Line displays so all students and alumni at the bottom of Tech can see the up-to-date leader board, schedule, and video broadcast. Nobody should miss out on our awesome broadcast!
100 YEARS of BUGGY
2020 marks the centennial celebration of Buggy - 100 years of a racing competition that brings together the breadth and depth of our CMU community. Fraternities and sororities, independent student organizations, athletes, engineers, designers and more coming together to compete in an interdisciplinary sport that is uniquely CMU.
Who We Are
In the spring of 2019, a group of passionate alumni, students, and staff came together to brainstorm ways to celebrate Buggy's 100th anniversary. We solicited ideas from all over and narrowed it down to a few ideas that we think will have the most impact on CMU.
What We're Hoping to Do
1. Race Day Fun for Everyone: your gift can ensure that Buggy is felt throughout the weekend, not just during the races. Sponsor merchandise to giveaway throughout the weekend. Sponsor buggy cupcakes to celebrate the centennial. Support fun buggy-related games and activities in a new Buggy Activities Tent on Midway.
2. Make Buggy Seen Around the World: your gift can ensure that Buggy is seen throughout the year, not just during the races. Support the creation of a permanent display in the Cohon University Center celebrating Buggy's history. Sponsor commemorative banners to be placed around campus featuring the unique designs of Buggy over the past 100 years. Sponsor "buggy in a box" to enable regional networks to host buggy watch-parties in their hometowns.
3. Ensure Buggy Lives on for Another 100 Years: although all gifts to this crowdfunding project will support the operations of Buggy 100, a new Buggy Endowed Fund was created to ensure that Buggy has the funding it needs for the next 100 years. If you would like to make a gift to the endowed fund, you can visit the CMU Giving page.
