The Greek Lawn mud pit, east of the varsity athletic field (adjacent to Lot M), is being primed for the 13th annual Mud Tug to be held on Saturday, Sept. 20, from noon to 5 p.m., at Rochester Institute of Technology.

The exuberant tug-of-war competition, hosted this year by Greek fraternities Zeta Tau Alpha and Phi Kappa Psi, brings together teams from fraternities, residence halls and campus organizations for a friendly pulling match over a mud-filled pit to help increase breast cancer awareness and research.

Each team consists of 10 individuals—either men, women or co-ed. A separate pit will be available for non-competitive mud fun. Raffles, food and music are planned for the day. All proceeds raised at this year’s Mud Tug will be donated to the national chapter of Breast Cancer Education and Awareness.

The annual event is a fun and safe way for students to expend energy aiding in the battle against the deadly disease that kills approximately 42,000 women annually.
