Polk County High School’s Unified Champions group plans to build a Chain of Unity to help support the Special Olmypics program at the school.
The group will sell individual links in the chain for 25 cents beginning Monday in the school cafeteria. Links will be sold through Thursday, with plans to display the chain during the Oct. 19 home football game with Mitchell that will be broadcast live on WMYA-TV.
Links can be personalized with statements of unity, inclusion and acceptance as well as words of encouragement for Special Olympics athletes.
The goal of the group is to build a chain that measures at least the distance around the school.
