This semester the Student Athletic Advising Committee (SAAC) hosted its first lock in at Keating Sports Center. The lock in was used to raise money for the Play for Life program. Play for Life is a non-profit organization that targets at risk youth and tries to build stronger communities. The goal for the evening was to raise as much money as possible for this organization, and at the end of the night the total was $260. This is enough money to send two children to summer camp.
During this lock in, Illinois Teach athletes played different sports with the student body. Basketball, volleyball, and zumba drew the biggest crowds of the night. We thank everyone who participated in this event including the athletes, coaches, and the student body. Look out for the next SAAC event, and if you are interested please go to the athletic office to purchase Illinois Tech athletic gear.
