About

Colby Athletics is driven by goals, fueled by challenges that require teamwork and determination. Throughout the month of February, our community will rally together and prove what’s possible by supporting the True Blue Challenge.

When the goal of 1,000 donors toward Friends of Athletics is reached, a generous gift of $25,000 from Trustee Steve Cummings ’77 will be unlocked for the Athletic Director’s Fund in order to support Colby Athletics’ most pressing needs. 

Because Mules don’t quit, Trustee Tim O’Donnell ’87 is igniting our competitive spirit with a challenge to surpass last year’s donor count of 1,848. Breaking past this milestone will unlock his incredible gift of $100,000 to be distributed evenly among the 17 Friends of Athletics programs.

Reach for the goal. Inspire participation. Demonstrate your Colby pride. Go Mules!

If you have any questions, please contact the Colby Fund office at 1-800-311-3678 or colbyfund@colby.edu.
