In 1989, a group of Fuqua students decided to invite their friends from other top business schools to Durham to enjoy the warm spring weather while raising money for Special Olympics North Carolina (SONC). Since then, the Duke MBA Games has evolved into the largest student run event on campus and has raised over $2 million for Special Olympics North Carolina!
We have a variety of events throughout the year, with the MBA Games weekend capping off all the fundraising in the spring. Other events for the Fuqua and Duke communities include:
Monthly Events with Special Olympics Athletes
Annual Silent & Live Auction
Social and Sports Fundraisers
MBA Games is the only organization of its kind among business schools, and we are proud to have it as part of our Fuqua tradition. We hope that you will join us in supporting the great work of SONC and celebrating the amazing athletes!!
MBA Games receives SONC Chairman’s Award
On September 24th, MBA Games received the 2010 Special Olympics North Carolina Chairman of the Board Award at the Governor's Mansion in Raleigh during the Eunice Kennedy Shriver Day celebration. SONC is the second largest Special Olympics chapter in North America with over 40,000 participating athletes, and Duke’s MBA Games is the single largest contributor – something we should all be proud of! Bill Richardson, Chairman of SONC, extended warm gratitude towards everyone involved with MBA Games. Without the support of the greater Fuqua community none of this would be possible. Thank you to everyone involved with MBA Games and we look forward to making this the best year yet!
