All elementary and middle schools and youth organizations in Colorado are eligible to participate in Ralphie’s Kids Roundup, a program that provides free football and women’s basketball tickets to youth.

Ralphie’s Kids Roundup, a program in which donors give money for football and women’s basketball tickets for children, kicked off its seventh year this fall. Ralphie’s Kids Roundup provides an opportunity for Colorado children ages 13 and under to attend a game at Folsom Field or the Coors Events Center.

How many children received free admission to CU home football games during the 2011 season through the Ralphie’s Kids Roundup program?

Thanks in part to donors, 1,500 youngsters ages 13 and under were invited to each of three home football games against Cal, Washington State and Arizona. Those kids also received free food, a drink and other goodies.

For more information on donating to the Ralphie’s Kids Roundup please contact the Buff Club office at 303-492-2200, or

Recruiting tip

Is CU responsible for the actions of its boosters and athletics representative groups?

Yes. CU is responsible for the conduct and actions of its athletics representatives and all organizations that promote the institution’s athletic programs.

It is CU’s responsibility to educate athletics representatives and other organizations about basic NCAA rules, monitor their actions involving current and prospective student-athletes and encourage them to ask questions. If a NCAA rule violation occurs, even unintentionally, it may jeopardize a prospect’s or current student-athlete’s eligibility.
