Through the outlet of athletic events, Fan the Fire strives to increase school spirit and garner a sense of Jumbo pride within the Tufts community. Every year, Fan the Fire sponsors various sporting events that highlight important games among different teams. Partnering up with a charity or service organization that is significant to our community, students, and our players, Fan the Fire works to recognize philanthropic organizations relevant to the Tufts campus. During our football event in the fall of 2013, we partnered with the Alzheimer’s association in honor of Corey Burns’ family, a current member of Tufts Football. In the winter of 2013-2014, Fan the Fire partnered with the heart association in recognition of a member of the men’s basketball team who was undergoing surgery, placing the event on Valentine’s Day to culminate our “heart theme.” Every year, the student athletic advisory committee promotes at least three games, each one highlighting a different sport and service. Having these events to remind the Tufts Student Body of the importance of not only our athlete’s devotion to the game and their teams, but also to their community and their service. Through every event, Fan the Fire works to give not only the players, but the entire student body, something to cheer for.
