Students Come Together To Gain Awareness

On Saturday, February 4th from 2-6 p.m. in the UMD Romano Gym, the University of Minnesota Duluth chapter of Gamma Sigma Sigma National Service Sorority, the UMD Men's Basketball Team and the UMD Student Association will be hosting an event to raise funds and awareness for the "Walk-A-Mile In Our Shoes" event for UDAC of Duluth.
UDAC is a nonprofit organization licensed and regulated by the State of Minnesota Department of Human Services. This organization works for adults and children with disabilities that include those who have Down Syndrome, Traumatic Brain Injury, physical challenges resulting from injury, and developmental disabilities ranging from moderate to severe. UDAC provides individuals with transportation services, employment, senior services, and opportunities for recreation and artistic expression and allows those they serve to be themselves.
Gamma Sigma Sigma, the UMD Men’s basketball team and UMD Student Association have partnered to raise money for the “Walk-a-Mile in our Shoes” Walkathon to support UDAC. Before the basketball game in the Romano Gym on the UMD campus on February 4th, the ladies of Gamma Sigma Sigma will be collecting free will donations for UDAC. The Men’s Basketball Team will be wearing UDAC warm-ups to show their support for the event. Over 70 UDAC consumers will be in attendance at the event. Also, if you are interested in participating in the the Holiday Center Skywalk between 11am and 2pm, or at UDAC on East 10th Street between 7am and 5pm, please visit www.udac.org, to register.
