What ODAC SAAC Programs Are Doing in 2014-15...
Roanoke College's SAAC: Organized a toy drive for Roanoke's Rescue Mission and donated more than 20 gifts for teenagers and children.
Bridgewater College SAAC: The Bridgewater College SAAC program hosted a Special Olympics Basketball Pizza party in Januray. Special Olympians and their families were invited to attend the Women's and Men's basketball games at 2pm and 4:30pm. Between the two games, SAAC hosted a pizza party with the Special Olympians and BC SAAC representatives helped serve the families and interacted with them.
*A special story BC wanted to share:One of the Special Olympians had been going through a hard time in his life. One of his caregivers was admitted into a nursing home and was not in good health. He did not want to do anything other than stay by her side. On top of that, one of his good friends from Special Olympics had passed away recently. When they asked him if he wanted to come be part of the pizza party and watch Bridgewater Basketball he was so excited and wanted to attend. His story was so special, so they presented him with a Nininger Nut t-shirt...made his day.

Roanoke College SAAC Hosts Special Olympics Volunteer 2 Cheer
RC hosted Special Olympics’ Volunteer 2 Cheer on their campus, as well as at two neighboring locations. Roanoke College SAAC members and other student-athletes helped in volunteer efforts, including attendance (cheering), and in operations (scorebook/board, announcing, etc.).
Randolph-Macon College SAAC Raises Money For Charities
The Randolph-Macon College SAAC organized a 'Midnight Macon Mile,' which is a run dedicated towards a healthy and safe spring break by promoting the prevention of drinking and driving. All proceeds collected from the event will be donated to two local beneficiaries: Hanover Cares and the Menzies Family (Meg Menzies was a local runner who killed tragically by a drunk driver a few weeks ago - her husband, Scott, is an Officer for the Ashland Police Department).
Virginia Wesleyan College Volunteers at Special Olympics Fall Championships: Several student-athletes from the baseball, golf, men's lacrosse and women's lacrosse teams, including SAAC members, volunteered at the Special Olympics Fall Championships in Virginia Beach in November.
Randolph-Macon College SAAC Participates in Holiday Cheer & Gear: R-MC's SAAC raised 66 gifts (basketballs, soccer balls, tennis balls, volleyballs, footballs, tennis racquets, lacrosse sticks, equipment bags, etc.) for youth in the greater Richmond area betweem the ages of 12-16 that are part of the Salvation Army Christmas Assistance Program.
