Make Your Mark: Angels for a Cause

Students, Faculty and Staff -

Please join me on Saturday, February 9 to attempt to break a world record in the snow while raising money for clean drinking water in Ethiopia.

Make Your Mark: Angels for a Cause will bring thousands of people to campus to break the Guinness Book of World Records' standard for the most snow angels made simultaneously. The current record is 8,963, set in North Dakota.

Duluth can break the record with your help!

UMD has a challenge with the College of St. Scholastica and Lake Superior College to see which college can get the largest percentage of its students, faculty and staff out for the Make Your Mark event. Be sure to wear your UMD colors and tell the gate attendant that you are representing UMD.

Gates to Malosky Stadium will open at 9:30 a.m. and the record attempt will be at 11:00 a.m. in the various athletics fields on the UMD campus.

The suggested donation is $5 for individuals or $10 for families.

The Rotary Club of Duluth and Proctor High School DECA have organized this event, and 100% of the profits raised from Make Your Mark will go to the Global Team for Local Initiatives, an organization that supports the indigenous people in Ethiopia affected by climate change.

You can register in advance online at makeyourmarkduluth.com and get updates on Facebook at www.facebook.com/makeyourmarkduluth. Anyone who registers online will be automatically eligible to win $1,000 in cash. Registration is also available at the door.

I look forward to seeing many of you there to show the world that Those Who Can, Duluth!
