13th Annual UNO Bell Tower Challenge Oct. 18
Omaha - The 13th annual University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Bell Tower Challenge is set for Wednesday, Oct. 18.
At noon, teams of students, faculty and staff will compete to stack as many food cans as possible while the bells of the Henningson Memorial Campanile chime. Awards will be presented to the teams that stack the most cans, the most creative teams and the most enthusiastic teams.
The event is sponsored each year by Eta Sigma Gamma, a health education honorary at UNO.
"We would love to set a new record this year," said David Corbin, event founder and a professor in the UNO School of Health, Physical Education and Recreation. "That means we need to collect more than 5,700 pounds of food."
All canned goods will be donated to the Omaha Food Bank (http://www.omahafoodbank.org). More than 33,000 pounds of food have been collected for the food bank since the event's inception.
For more information, contact Corbin at (402) 554-2670 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the Web at http://www.unomaha.edu/healthed/BT.html.
