2022 Barefoot Challenge


Former Babson President Brian Barefoot '66, H'09, MP'01 is challenging his fellow alumni athletes and parents of student-athletes to support Babson Athletics this week.

On March 7-10, join fellow members of the Babson Athletics community by supporting your favorite team. 

Follow Babson teams on social media for updates, and join us online to support Babson Athletics and share your pride. No matter which team you support, when we play as a team, we’re tough to beat.


Spread the Word about the Barefoot Athletics Challenge with our Social Media Ambassador Toolkit.


As a thank you for your support of Babson Athletics during the Barefoot Athletics Challenge, you have the option of receiving a Babson Athletics branded perk item at various giving levels.

When making your gift, make a selection in the "And select a perk below" section before completing your gift.

Your gift must be greater than or equal to the value of the perk you’d like to receive. To increase your gift amount to the requested perk level, select "Yes" when asked if you'd like to match the perk amount.

If you do not wish to receive the perk associated with your gift amount, please select "No Perk.”

After you complete the Perks section, scroll down to the Contact Information section to complete your gift.
