USTtc3StudentNine teams gathered from organizations throughout the Twin Cities and went head to head (literally, at times) in TC3 Sports’ charity flag football tournament last weekend. This event was made possible by the generous sponsorship of the UST MBA Programs and benefited the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Minnesota.

Teams hailed from Target, Ameriprise, General Mills, OptumHealth, the University of St. Thomas MBA programs, and more. But only “Best Method” from Target and defending champions “No Limit” from General Mills advanced to the final game. These two teams were neck and neck to the very end of the championship game. With less than 20 seconds remaining, Best Method converted the extra point and won the game.

Team fees, personal contributions, and the UST MBA Programs’ sponsorship enabled a significant donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Minnesota, an organization dedicated to granting wishes to children with critical illnesses. Thank you all for your participation and support.
