On Tuesday, November 27, several of Miami University's sports teams joined with some Greek students to raise awareness for Juvenile Arthritis. Students took part in numerous competitive and humorous challenges that had to be completed within a minute. Between each challenge, facts about Juvenile Arthritis were shared with the audience.
The Minute-to-Win-It challenges all required some coordination and lots of enthusiasm. One challenge was to wrap a roll of toilet paper around another student; the first person to wrap the whole roll, without tearing the paper, won. Another challenge was to shake ping-pong balls out of an empty tissue box, which was attached to the students' waist.
All of the challenges were extremely entertaining, and the crowd's cheers boomed throughout Millett. Those involved included Alpha Omicron Pi, Alpha Delta Pi, Kappa Delta, Delta Kappa Epsilon, Gamma Phi Beta, Acacia and Alpha Epsilon Pi. These Greek students, paired with sports teams, completed all of the Minute to Win It challenges,with the teams who won the most challenges moving on to the final round.
The finals took place Saturday with the football and volleyball teams combining to take the championship.
Thank you to AOPi for hosting this year's Minute to Win It and raising awareness concerning the Juvenile Arthritis Foundation!
