Sydney Wallenfelsz, Mount Mercy senior and frisbee golf advocate, received a sustainability, mini-grant award for a project that promotes wellness, recreation, and re-purposing of resources. The "ReTIREd" project will install a disk golf basket in tandem with a frisbee golf putting hole. A recycled tire will form the main portion of the basket. Marked distances will be featured around the basket. Players will start at the closest point and move further back on each succeeding turn. The goal is to move "around the basket" to complete a single game.
