WORLD DOWN SYNDROME DAY

Written on December 17, 2018 by Campus Life in Social, Sports

During the week leading up to World Down syndrome day (March 21st), the IE Rugby team will be having several bake sales and other fundraising actions to raise money for the Talita Foundation that works here in Madrid to integrate children with learning disabilities into the educational system.

We hope to rally many willing chefs and salespeople to make this operation as successful as can be. Please get in touch with the IE Rugby coordinators if you are interested in being involved!

Remember, awesomeness is stored in the 21st Chromosome.

IE Men’s Rugby did Mo’vember

Written on December 14, 2018 by Campus Life in Social, Sports

To open a series of events organized by the IE Rugby team in tandem with the Charity club and the Student Leadership Team to raise profits and awareness towards the Movember Foundation, IE hosted an exhibition match facing off with London Business School. The match was only the catalyst for a wonderful weekend filled with social gatherings, networking events and school spirit.
For those who are unaware, the Movember foundation strives to increase support and reduce stigma surrounding men’s mental health issues, as well as increase awareness for male-specific illnesses (namely testicular and prostate cancers). The IE rugby team takes men’s health very seriously, and we greatly appreciate all the collective efforts made both on and off campus to raise awareness for this great cause.
The weekend of festivities saw the two teams come together following the match and proceed in a traditional “Tercer Tiempo” where songs were sang and friends were made. The IE rugby team then hosted a Movember event at Boom Room where all the proceeds went directly to the Movember Foundation. In total all our efforts raised over 2000 euros for the foundation.
I would like to take a moment to thank all the Mo Bros and Mo Sistas for their donations! Additionally, I would like to thank the various coordinators and the LBS Rugby team for making this weekend such a success.

Running Club presentation

Written on December 13, 2018 by Campus Life in Sports

“Most runners run not because they want to live longer, but because they want to live life to the fullest.” – Haruki Murakami
The IE Running Club is a social group for running enthusiasts for all programs of the IE University based in Madrid. The objective of the Club is to bring together people, with abilities ranging from amateurs to serious runners, and help build and grow this community.
The club operates with three different sets of events:

  • Regular Sunday runs – venues alternate between Retiro Park or Casa de Campo
  • Impromptu weekday runs – smaller runs/intervals at Parque Santander
  • Marathon events in Spain – we even have winners amongst us! (more on that in a separate, exclusive post)

The post-run time is also a great opportunity for different programs and intakes to meet each other and discuss the club activities, upcoming races as well as share personal stories of inspiration.

All events are posted on Campus Life, and the group uses WhatsApp as the primary form of communication and coordination. Keeping in touch with the times, all the events are loaded on the school’s Strava community, including the route to be followed.
There is also an active Instagram page, to give you all the right nudges and inspiration to get you moving!
Here’s to making 2019 a more active year for all 🙂
