Tad Boyle Raises Money for SOCO
University of Colorado men’s basketball coach Tad Boyle needs your help in his quest to win $100,000 for Special Olympics of Colorado.
Boyle is one of 48 NCAA Division I men’s basketball coaches participating in the sixth annual “Infiniti Coaches’ Charity Challenge.” Partnering with the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), the NCAA and ESPN, the program consists of a four-round online fan vote that helps raise money for each coaches’ individual charity.
Fans will decide the winner over a four-round, 10-week period, by casting votes on a custom online microsite at www.ESPN.com\Infiniti. Voters can cast their votes for one coach’s charity each day.
While there can only be one winner, Infiniti has guaranteed coach Boyle a donation of at least $1,000 to Special Olympics of Colorado. The amount of the donation increases the longer he stays in the competition.
The first round of voting runs through Jan. 24, with half of the coaches advancing to a second round, held between Jan. 25 and Feb. 14. From Feb. 15 to Feb. 28, the 16 advancing coaches from round two will compete in a third round where only four coaches advance to the final, fourth round. From Feb. 29 to Mar.13, fans can vote for one coach per day, with the top vote-getting coach and charity announced on Mar. 13, 2016.
