|Mile of Quarters campaign is April 10-12|
The University's police department, along with the Criminal Justice Association, seeks supporters for its Mile of Quarters campaign. A booth will be set-up in the Memorial Union April 10–12 for people to purchase a foot of quarters ($3) or a yard of quarters ($9). Money raised will be donated through the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) program for Special Olympics North Dakota (SOND). The goal is to raise one mile of quarters which equals 63,360 quarters and to beat NDSU in achieving this goal.
Please inform the students in each of your classes and join them in supporting SOND by stopping by the booth any time from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Every quarter counts! This is the first time this event is being held in North Dakota and the first time with Special Olympics ND LETR. UND Chief Czapiewski says, “Our department is responsible for the safety of the students and staff. This event is a good way to foster a relationship that heightens awareness of the goals of the campus law enforcement and at the same time raise money and awareness to showcase the abilities and talents of children and adults with intellectual disabilities.”
