About the Chris Munn Sevens

This years’ Chris Munn 7’s Tournament will once again feature many of the top men's and women’s collegiate teams from the Northeast. The tournament will be held on Sunday, 26 April 2015 at Sabine Field on the Norwich University campus in Northfield, Vermont. Our tournament is named in honor of former Norwich men’s rugby team captain Chris Munn. Chris played rugby throughout college and during an illustrious career in the U.S. Army. In 2013 Chris was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease). He is waging a determined fight against the disease, his positive attitude and spirit are an inspiration to his teammates, classmates and friends alike. Please come and join us as we play rugby to raise awareness and understanding of this incurable disease.
