|This team loves cupcakes|
Well, what started out as six different teams asked to fundraise at least a minimum of $35 each turned out to be the whole team working together - and raising a whole bunch more. They set up tables in the library the week of halloween to sell candy to those needing a study break. They got together to make baked goods during their free time. They organized a table during our homecoming football game to not only make some money, but also spread the word about the Ted Mullin Fund and sarcoma research. They even called friends, alums, and parents and asked for donations!
It was an all out attack for the Ted Mullin Fund - and you could tell they did it not only because they believe in it - but because they truly love the "Hour of Power." This event has become a favorite of the team, and teams around the country. They talk about for several weeks each year. They look forward to an hour of pain! And my email inbox gets bombarded every 2nd Tuesday of November with 50+ emails with pictures from coaches around the country who talk about how amazing their Hour of Power just was.

Yes, we raised money to better a great cause… but Ted Mullin just made us better... again. We are so very grateful and proud to be a part of this event.
Thank you Carleton and the Mullin family for such a great idea and tremendous opportunity to make a difference.

This is year EIGHT of the Ted Mullin Hour of Power. I was lucky to be at Bates' first year doing it when I started here in 2007… Below is a quick peek at those who started this event - and made it so important to us!
