Rematch: Give to the Max Day ACES Challenge!
One year ago, Matt Dumba and Michael Boxall faced off in a friendly competition in support of ACES’s transformative programming for Minnesota students. This year, they’re BACK for another Give to the Max Day Challenge – and they’re bringing backup!
Step off the sidelines with Matt Dumba and Mats Zuccarello of the Minnesota Wild and Michael Boxall and Robin Lod of Minnesota United FC to help ALL students receive an all-star education. From November 1st – November 17th, 2022, join #TeamDumbarello or #TeamBoxalod by making a donation of any amount to ACES. Share your team pride, encourage your friends to get in on the action and, at the end of the giving period, we’ll announce which team ends up on top. No matter which team you join or how much you give, all donations make an important difference for Minnesota students.
ACES (Athletes Committed to Educating Students) is an innovative out-of-school-time program that brings math and social-emotional learning to life for Minnesota. Our hands-on curriculum, individual mentorship, and once-in-a-lifetime field trip opportunities help students develop crucial academic and life skills – all through the exciting lens of sports! In partnership with Minnesota’s professional and collegiate sports teams, ACES is tackling the academic opportunity gap and preparing young learners to succeed in school, career, and community.
Meeting the Moment
Test results released this fall in the “Nation’s Report Card” reveal the staggering impact the pandemic continues to have on education. Minnesota test scores have fallen to their lowest point in 30 years and education disparities have only gotten worse – especially in math.
With a specific focus on foundational math skills and presence in Minnesota’s most historically marginalized communities, ACES is centrally positioned to meet this moment. We envision a future in which ALL students have access to first-rate programming. We envision a future in which ALL students have the support to bounce back from pandemic learning loss even stronger. If you’re with us, if you believe ALL students deserve an all-star education, support ACES on Give to the Max Day 2022!
