So Close!!

February 21, 2019

Enjoy this message from two members of Team Rocky!

We Flew Past $1,000 - THANK YOU!

February 08, 2019

We Just Hit $1,000! 

 

In honor of hitting this mile-marker in our campaign, we wanted to share some more behind the scenes content with you!

 

It's Video Time!

 

Whether you've seen this video or not, it's a great one! Filmed and edited by one of our Team Rocky members, Paul McGroarty, they literally did this just because, for fun and to spread a little joy around Halloween time. Then afterwards, they went around campus and passed out candy to everyone they saw! They even brought some of their other mascot friends with them.

 

Pictured (left to right): Rocky, Roxy (Rocky's little sister), Ricky (Rocky's cousin) and Terry the Dinosaur. Then you will see some of our team in the other picture with the mascots!

 

Help Us Give Back

 

This money will help us do even more for the Montclair State community. And that's really what it's all about isn't it? Giving back. Passing out candy, just because. Making you smile. 

 

Team Rocky has made a huge difference on campus in the four short years it's been in existence, not only for those who are on the team, but for all of the other students, faculty, staff, alumni and family members who have ever interacted with this great bird, embodied by even greater students.

 

Thanks to those who donated already -- please keep spreading the word!

 

Reached 25% of Our Goal!

February 04, 2019

This weekend we hit $650 -- which is more than 25% of our goal! Thank you to everyone who donated already, but let's keep it going! In honor of the Super Bowl yesterday, Rocky is confident we can make the next "field" goal of $1000! Who's with us?!

 

We also wanted to share a behind the scenes photo with you since we hit a milestone, and we will continue to do so as long as they $$$ keeps coming in!

 

This photo was taken in August 2018 at one of our Team Rocky trainings. The group of students shown are the ones dedicated to spreading Red Hawk Pride both on and off campus. They are all volunteers. They love Montclair State University and take their role as a member of Team Rocky very seriously! 

 

Twice a year they go through training to ensure they understand the importance of what it means to be (or handle) a school mascot. They learn good communication skills, how to effectively and successfully work on a team and also run through scenarios they may face when they are out as (or with) Rocky. For example, some students have a legitimate fear of mascots! We teach them how react to situations such as these and many others. 

 

Not only will these students be benefiting from the money we raise, but they will also be able to give back to the 21,000+ other students at Montclair State University in more ways than you know.
