Braving wind and freezing rain, students made the long trek to White Field on Sunday morning, only to jump in the mud for a game of volleyball to raise money for charity. The annual Keenan Hall Muddy Sunday began at 11 a.m. and saw roughly 400 people playing volleyball in ankle-deep mud throughout the day.
Junior Jack Higham said he organized the event alongside fellow Keenan residents Henry Mulholland and Mark O’Meara.
“Muddy Sunday is a charity event for Habitat for Humanity, first and foremost,” Higham said. “We do that through a mud volleyball event. It used to be a tournament. Now it’s just for fun. We make the field really muddy and put up volleyball nets, and people will come out and play a team. It’s really fun, and you feel good about yourself at the end of the day, because it’s for charity.”
Higham said the event charges $10 per person and sells T-shirts and tank tops to raise money for Habitat for Humanity.
“All the expenses come from Keenan Hall’s funds, and any money we make is sent directly to Habitat for Humanity,” he said.
Before the event, Higham said there was a chance Muddy Sunday would be cancelled due to weather.
