Saint Joseph’s University Hawks – students, faculty, staff and alumni – will celebrate National Philanthropy Day November 15 at 11:30 a.m. by attempting to set a World Record for the longest simultaneous “group flap” at a rally dubbed “Flapitude 2012” being held at the University’s Michael J. Hagan ’85 Arena. This event has been shortlisted by as an attempt that will help celebrate the Eighth Annual Guinness World Records Day, the international day of celebration for record-breaking.
The rally is the official kickoff of the University’s President’s Magis Scholarship Initiative, a fundraising effort to enable the University to offer more scholarship support to its students.
“The Hawk Will Never Die!” is rallying cry for the Hawk and the University, and is symbolized by the fact that the Hawk mascot never stops flapping. The SJU community will express its gratitude by flapping continuously as a symbolic gesture to thank the University’s donors for supporting student scholarship and to raise awareness on the impact philanthropy has on its students.
