Students Partner with President, Provost in Water Dodgeball for Social Justice

President Heckler, Provost Designate Mark Schwehn and students will face off in a water balloon dodgeball game on Tuesday, May 5, from 11:30 am-12:30 pm on the lawn between the Union, Chapel, VUCA and Christopher Center.  The event is sponsored by the Social Action Leadership Team (SALT) and the 2009 World Relief Campaign: “Shui 2 Go! Pipeline to the People.”

All students and faculty are invited to join the water dodgeball game on the team of either President Heckler or Provost Designate Schwehn.

In order for the event to take place, SALT has set a goal of $700 to be raised for “Shui 2 Go.”  Donations can be made at or with cash or credit/debit card at the Union Info Desk. 

“Shui 2 Go! Pipeline to the People” is a campaign to raise $15,000 for the implementation of a sustainable, gravity-fed water pipeline in rural China.  The pipeline will deliver clean water to over 900 villagers in Saihan, China.
