Hendrix Raises Money for Special Olympics

CONWAY, Ark. - The Hendrix College Student-Athlete Advisory Committee helped raise $600 for Arkansas Special Olympics with the Kickin' It with the Warriors Kickball Tournament Sunday.

Four teams played for the title, with more than 60 Warrior student-athletes competing or volunteering along with 13 Special Olympic athletes. The event was the kickoff to NCAA Division III Week for Hendrix.

"We provided the Special Olympic athletes with a fun afternoon filled with sportsmanship, teamwork and passion," said Hendrix field hockey and women's lacrosse sophomore Holly Heeb, who ran the tournament. "It was amazing to see DIII week kicked off in such an amazing way."
