RJ Reynolds High School goes freezing for a reason!
The Spread the Word: Inclusion Rally has moved to Greensboro from Downtown Raleigh, so we can celebrate inclusion in even cooler ways: with a Cool Schools Polar Plunge!
RJ Reynolds High School of Winston-Salem is making a splash this year by participating in the Cool Schools Polar Plunge and Rally on February 28.
A Cool School is a group of 20 or more students, faculty and staff brave enough to take the dip in freezing cold water to support Special Olympics North Carolina. Each plunger must raise a minimum of $50 toplunge. Schools can choose to do a school-wide fundraiser to help each plunger with this goal.
RJ Reynolds High School's Cool Schools efforts are being led by Coach Sabio, the men’s soccer coach, who has raised over $900 so far!
Spread the Word: Inclusion Day is March 4
For the past 10 years, Spread the Word to End the Word has started the conversation on respect.
Spread the Word Inclusion is continuing our success through an ongoing effort by Special Olympics, Best Buddies and our supporters to inspire respect and acceptance by advocating for inclusive words and actions so that we can end discrimination of individuals with intellectual disabilities.
The campaign, created and reimagined by youth, is intended to engage schools, organizations and communities to rally and pledge their support for the inclusion and acceptance of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
