- A Wonderful Way to Honor Two Dartmouth ’15s May 13, 2015
We were just informed of this incredible event that is taking place on Saturday, May 23, Memorial Day weekend.
On May 23rd, Dartmouth students will host an event called “The Memorial Challenge” to honor the passing of Torin Tucker, D’15 and Blaine Steinberg, D’15. This event will take place on Memorial Field at Dartmouth and will be an enormous, community circuit training! Torin was an xc skier at Dartmouth and some of you knew him well. Blaine was a lacrosse player. Both sound like they were amazing people. This seems like a creative and amazing way to honor them! 250 people have signed up already.
