Gryphons in the Community

As members of the Gryphon Football team, we have a responsibility to give back to our community to create long-lasting relationships.

Community service is essential to build character. Each gryphon is fortunate enough to attend university and we want our student-athletes to realize the importance of helping others.

Gryphons have been given a great gift of athleticism and ability to participate in activities, and by being an active member of the community we are building leaders both on and off the field.

Giving back to the community brings us closer as a team and as a family.

 

Amanda Lang Public Talk & Book Signing Event

The Guelph Gryphons Football team partnered with the University's College of Business and Economics, as well as The Angel Gabriel Foundation to present the Amanda Lang Public Talk and Book Signing Event. This event featured best selling author of The Power of Why  and The Beauty of Discomfort, Amanda Lang. The day included talks in selected business classes, a dinner with faculty, students, coaches and players, and then the public talk and the book signing. A student who demonstrated resilience and preserverance in overcoming adversity won the Amanda Lang Resilience Award of $5000.

On January 21, 2018, we finally got to take a spin in our Pavilion barber chair! With the help of Ferraro Salon, we were able to clean some of our boys up and raise money for a good cause. The players were asked to donate $5, as well as bring any old drawstring bags or backpacks that they no longer use. The donated items were shared amongst varius shelters in Guelph and downtown Toronto.
