One Weekend, Two Olympic Qualifiers

April 20, 2016

More than three months remain until the Rio Opening Ceremonies, and your Golden Bears are already leading the way. 

This past weekend, California gymnastics athletes Toni-Ann Williams and Ryan Patterson qualified for the Summer Games. Williams will compete as the first Jamaican Olympic gymnast in the island nation's history, while Patterson is the first South African gymnast to qualify for the Olympics in over five decades. 

Both Toni-Ann and Ryan exemplify so much of what makes Cal a singular institution: competitive excellence, international prominence, and impressive diversity.

Share the #RoadToRio story with friends and family and celebrate Cal's Olympic legacy. 

Go Bears!

Strong out of the blocks

April 13, 2016

Road to Rio supporters,

Thank you for your commitment to Cal's Olympic legacy and the #RoadToRio campaign. Thanks to you, we have raised well over a third of our goal in just a week. 

But there's still work to be done. Please share the crowdfund on social media with a direct link, the hashtag (#RoadToRio), or a personalized message - or all three. 

We aren't just approaching a monetary goal. We are celebrating an unparalleled tradition of excellence while providing our Olympic programs with the tools to remind the globe that the whole wide world is Bear Territory.

Go Bears!
