Tigers move health and wellness aspirations online during COVID-19 pandemic

Even separated, the Tiger community found ways to come together virtually and cheer each other on through a variety of challenges and webinars.

CoRUNavirus Challenge

Dean of Students David Tuttle challenged the Trinity community to complete 50 miles running, walking, skating, or even crawling! More than 160 Tigers signed up to crush more than 8,000 miles collectively, getting some fresh air and sunshine during the pandemic. The challenge also encouraged participants to donate to the San Antonio Food Bank, an extension of the Dean of Students Half Marathon fall program and its relationship with the Kayla Mire Food Drive.

Trick Shot Competition

Inspired by a challenge hosted by the National Intramural and Recreational Sports Association, Trinity Recreational Sports hosted a trick shot competition open to employees and students. Submissions included a bagel toss into a toaster, a ping pong ball bounced off pans, and toilet paper juggling. View all of the videos on Trinity Recreation’s Instagram page
