The Temple University Board of Trustees recently announced that they will eliminate seven athletic programs as of July 1st, 2014. These teams are Women's Softball, Men's Baseball, Men's Crew, Women's Rowing, Men's Gymnastics, and Men's Track and Field. These sports are historic to Temple University.
This initiative has been setup for the funds going to the Temple Boys Team, a non-profit organization that can receive donations. Money received will be sent to TUMG. Without the men's team, coaches etc there would have never been a boys team.
The Board and University Administration are blaming the Title IX Amendment for equality in funding for men and women, lack of funding and to run leaner so the surviving sports can grow. Raising this money will force them to really answer for why they are cutting these sports.
If this effort does not succeed in reinstating the Temple Men's Gymnastics Program, then the money raised will be endowed to the protection and possible creation of other Division 1 teams around the country.
PLEASE HELP SAVE TEMPLE UNIVERSITY MEN'S GYMNASTICS!!!
