What is Sock Fight?
Since the Alumni Volunteer Challenge launched in April 2013, U of A alumni have completed more than 2,015 acts of volunteer service and, as of Alumni Weekend 2014, more than 2,015 individual volunteers will have contributed their time and talents.
The success of the Challenge knocked our socks off!
To celebrate, we balled up 4,030 pairs of green and gold socks (representing the 2,015+ alumni volunteers and their 2,015+ acts of volunteerism) and made them available to 200 alumni, staff and students to hurl, fling and lob at one another at a little event we called Sock Fight. After the event, all of the socks were donated to three local charities — Boyle Street Community Services, Salvation Army and iHuman Youth Society.
