The Winter Games Victory Dance was an incredible celebration! Athletes, along with their friends and families, took a break from the Cupid Shuffle to renew their pledge to ban the R-Word. Streaks of red, black, blue and purple ink decorated the huge Erase the R-Word poster just outside the dance, but there was room for each and every signature. Speaking of that dreaded word, the fourth annual R-Word Day is on March 6, what will you do to commemorate the occasion? Have you taken the pledge? Do it now! Also, be sure to email any photos of your R-Word day functions, events and pledge activities to communications@sotx.org.
