This year's CAM Forever Donor Sprint – which ran from October 31 to November 4 – was one of our most successful yet! While we greatly exceeded our sprint goal of 100 donors, there's no such thing as too much support for CAM the Ram and the Ram Handlers. You can still make a gift to the CAM Forever fund today through this page! Read more below to learn about how your support makes an impact on the day-to-day of our four-legged friend CAM and the Ram Handlers.
CAM the Ram is the official animal ambassador of Colorado State University. A celebrated and time-honored tradition for more than 60 years, CAM the Ram was chosen by the student body in 1945 to serve proudly as Colorado State University's animal ambassador. Named in honor of Colorado A&M in 1954, he represents CSU at home football games and community events throughout the year.
A fixture in the game-day experience, CAM welcomes Rams fans and celebrates in the end zone after a Rams touchdown. Our dedicated group of students, known as the Ram Handlers, ensure he receives the best possible care and training a land-grant university can provide. Gifts to CAM Forever keep CAM happy, healthy, and available to attend CSU events. Most of the budget covers the costs to feed, house, and care for CAM, and the rest supports his travel costs and covers expenses for our hard-working student-volunteers, the Ram Handlers. Join us in keeping his legacy and tradition going forever by supporting the Ram Handler program, CAM's care, and travel costs with a gift to to the CAM Forever fund.
This year, thanks to the generosity of The Debra J. Marbut and Daniel Burger Veterinary Medicine and Biological Science Endowment, the first $500 donated to this project was matched dollar for dollar!
