On Tuesday, November 9th, the Bates Bobcatcs split up into five relays of about seven people each to participate in the Hour of Power. The “Hour of Power” relay is in honor of Carleton College swimmer Ted Mullin, who died in the fall of 2006 from sarcoma, a rare soft-tissue cancer. Funds raised through this event support research at the University of Chicago into the causes and treatment of sarcoma in young people.
For those participating in the hour of power, this means giving everything they have for a full hour straight - the main objective is to "leave it all in the pool", as Ted always did.
The team was full of pride and enthusiasm as the they participated in the hour of power, and concluded with a Bobcat cheer.
