Orange Krush: Krush Kamp
It is that time of year again for the Special Olympics Krush Kamp! Last year's event was a huge success and we look to make it an even bigger success this season! We are very excited to be hosting this event again as it truly shows that Krush is just more than a student section and is dedicated to making an impact in our community.
In case you may not know what Krush Kamp is, the Illinois Men's basketball team (both players and staff) will be helping Krush run different basketball games and drills for Special Olympic athletes. It takes place at Ubben Basketball Complex, where the team holds their practices. Both Special Olympic athletes and Orange Krush members will have an opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at the facilities and play some basketball on the practice courts.
Currently, we are trying to see who is interested in the event so we can see what kind of attendance to expect from our members. So everyone who participates in the Krush Kamp can receive a complimentary T-shirt, we will be limiting volunteer participation to the first 50 members.
Some details about Krush Kamp to consider:
- Krush Kamp will be taking place on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 6th at 2PM
- The camp will last around 1.5 hours
- You will be playing basketball alongside Illinois basketball players and staff
- Great opportunity to make the day of these Special Olympics athletes
- The event is FREE and everyone will receive a special edition Krush Kamp T-shirt!
If you would like to attend this event, please fill out this very short survey regarding your interest so the Krush leaders can get an idea of how many members to expect. Answering this survey does not commit you to anything however!
If you do choose to attend, we would ask that you arrive at Ubben by 1:15PM so that you can receive your job/station and help with the registration process. Ubben Basketball Complex is located across 4th street from the State Farm Center, next to Bielfeldt Administration Building.
