Students at Northland Pines High School have an opportunity to participate in Project UNIFY. Special Olympics Project UNIFY® is an education-based project that uses sports and education programs to activate young people to develop school communities where all youth are agents of change – fostering respect, dignity and advocacy for people with intellectual disabilities.
Students have participated in unified sports programs including: Cheer and Dance, Basketball Skills, Learn to Skate and Track and Field. In addition, students have bi-monthly meetings during which they engage in activities to promote tolerance and inclusion.
There are many ways to support our Project Unify Group and one of them is the annual Polar Plunge. Last year six brave souls took the plunge and raised over $1700 - thanks to all who pledged/donated! The plunge this year is taking place in Wausau on February 26 and anyone is welcome to join the jumpers; if an ice cold bath isn’t your cup of tea, consider pledging our Project Unify Team. Check out the link provided to either register to take the plunge as a member of the NPHS Project Unify Team or donate. We’re hoping to raise $2500 for Special Olympics Wisconsin this year - please help us! Click here.
