Luther's Student Athlete Advisory Committee hosted the fifth annual Unity Bowl on Saturday, Nov. 23. The event brings together an afternoon of fun for Luther athletes and Special Olympics athletes from Decorah, Iowa and the surrounding area.
The event was organized by Luther student-athletes, junior Hanna Jennings (Williamsburg, Iowa) and senior Derek McCready (St. Charles, Minn.). These two along with the help of 40 Luther student-athletes, helped provide a great experience for everyone involved.
Approximately 40 Special Olympic athletes participated in the afternoon's events that included free admission and a t-shirt to the men's basketball game against Ripon College. During halftime, the Special Olympic athletes were honored with a video and each athlete was introduced to the crowd. Following the game, the group went bowling at Oneota Lanes and enjoyed pizza.
