Emerson Channel Sports: All Sports. All Emerson.
Welcome to Christine White's Personal Fundraising Page!
We are on our way to bigger and better broadcasts!
Since my freshman year, Emerson Channel Sports has transformed into a fully functioning live broadcast network. The first year I was involved we had maybe 10 students doing the work of 30, which has transformed into a group of passionate individuals working hard to make Emerson Channel Sports better for future students. Emerson Channel Sports has taught me more about live TV than any class could.
I invite you to help us, help future students, and make our broadcasts better and more professional.

Expanding our Education
Why help ECS? It is more than a group of kids talking about sports, it's a movement for Emerson College toward growing a reputation in sports communication and broadcasting excellence
- We’re one of the largest emerging organizations on campus with our production and marketing staff having grown upwards of 500% in the last year
- Our reach has expanded across the country, which has raised the standards of our broadcasts therefore puts more demands on our equipment
- Our technology is limiting our capabilities and room for growth, therefore the student initiatives to try new techniques in film, broadcast, and communications often do not air due to our outdated equipment
- These funds will allow our team to expand their skill set, bring a better broadcast to our growing audience, and bolster the reputation of Emerson College in sports communication
We're also grateful to our friends over at the Berkeley Beacon, Emerson's paper, for a great article about this initiative and our future plans for the funds.

It's important to mention that while the funds are going directly towards broadcast equipment for the Bobbi Brown and Steven Plofker Gym where basketball and volleyball play, it's a step towards us providing more coverage at Rotch Playground where softball, lacrosse, and soccer play. We love working with these teams and once we improve our existing broadcast, we're hoping to pursue other opportunities at Rotch.
We also hope you enjoy this new video starring Emerson's Women's Lacrosse team! We had a blast working with them--they're one of the funniest teams on campus--and certainly have a fantastic sense of humor in this video. (It's important to note that it's an ode to Beyonce's 7/11 video, so check out both if you haven't already!)
Thank you again--we really can't say it enough--and please continue to share our campaign and empower our mission!
