With Gratitude

A special thank you to all those at Boston College who help make this event so successful. We could not make this happen without the support of BC Dining, BCPD, BC Athletics, BC Bookstore, the department of Transportation & Parking, the Office of Community & Govermental Affairs, and the University Mission and Ministry Service Center.

In addition, we are all extremely grateful for the annual support of the men's and women's lacrosse teams, the men's baseball team, Eagle EMS, women's field hockey, and the many students, faculty, and staff who participate as volunteers, runners, walkers, or well-wishers.
