Wet Fundraiser for Special Olympics

031710NewsAndNotes_FountainFirst one over the raging rapids wins.

A fundraiser for the Special Olympics will be held April 30 at 1 p.m. The campus’ Police Department is hosting the event. All campus groups and departments, including faculty, staff and students, are welcome to enter the fun event.

Teams will build a boat per these specs: No more than 8 inches wide x 18 inches long; and not less than 6 inches wide x 10 inches long.

Boats will be placed into the fountain’s waters. The first boat to plunge into the lower level of water will be the winner.

Of course, as Officer Drew Whitaker notes, the real winner will be Special Olympics.

Each entry is $50. The boats will be launched at the fountain at 1 p.m. on April 30. There will be pizza and music with a live DJ.
The entry deadline is April 25.

There is no practice for any teams, Whitaker notes, “however we do encourage teams to inspect the fountain’s waters.”

For questions and entry, contact Sgt. Armburger or Whitaker at 4-5963.
