Intercollegiate Sports Day (hosted by MIT)

14 other US/UK Universities

Chicago Booth Alumni Club of Hong Kong

February 19, 2012

As one of Hong Kong Alumni Club's signature events, MIT Sports Day brings together different schools, families, friends, and children for a fun day of sports. We will have some competitive track and field events, ball games (basketball, soccer, volleyball, dodgeball), as well as games that kids love. Guests and kids are welcome! Last year we had more than 150 guests from over 14 universities compete. Winners will receive medals and the winning school gets to bring home the Trophy (and of course, bragging rights).

Get your sporting gear out enjoy the sun! Come support your fellow alumni/friends (in your school T-shirt or color)!
