Basically, a Foldathon is where you fold as many work units as you can during a set time period (ours being the whole month of November), and building as many points for your donor name as possible.
As well as acting like a Team Member Recruitment Drive, we want to see how far we can push our Team Ranking position, as it stands at 1279th at the moment. By folding as many work units as possible, we'll be doing a lot of important work for Stanford University. It's also a way to create a bit of friendly competitive spirit amongst our team members, spurring them on to either putting on extra machines for themselves, or encouraging their friends and family to join the cause!
I've changed the 'Team Birthday' countdown clock to reflect the time period of the Foldathon. So we now have to the end of November to make as many points as possible!
Here's a snapshot of our current team stats which will be used in combination with a snapshot early on the 1st of December to decide a Winner of the 2nd Team Birthday Foldathon! Where a team member has more than one folding name, the sum of their folding names will be used.
