Quackin' Action Set for Sunday, May 22
Release Date: 05/17/2011
The UO student-athletes will host five work stations which focus on the following: sportsmanship, nutrition, fitness, safety and teamwork. In addition, local volunteer firefighters and police officers will conduct a fire and safety presentation for students and their parents.
"Quackin' Action is an exciting opportunity for student-athletes to connect with some of Eugene's most enthusiastic Duck fans,” said Ben DeJarnette, one of the UO student-athletes serving as an event director. “Our goal is for the kids to learn through fun activities that encourage teamwork, physical activity, and sportsmanship.”
“I think the huge number of volunteers for this event reflects the desire of student-athletes to give back to a community whose support has been incredible all year," DeJarnette said.
The Duck Pep Band and Spirit Squads will also be on hand to teach the UO fight song “Mighty Oregon” to the participating youth.
To conclude the event, the student-athletes will also have an autograph signing session.
