Athletics: Brainerd joins in ‘Be the Light’ movement for student athletes
Brainerd High School lit the lights of its football field, baseball field and tennis courts Monday, April 20, as a part of the #BetheLightMN social media trend that has swept the state.
Activities director Charlie Campbell made it clear that he didn’t want families to violate the stay at home order, which is why it was not announced that the lights would be on.
The plan is to make a video to honor the athletes.
Campbell is considering having the lights on each Monday for 20 minutes for the remainder of the school year.
With schools closed until May 1, sports won’t be able to return until May 4, at the earliest.
Other schools in the area like Crosby-Ironton, Wadena-Deer Creek, Pine River-Backus, Pierz and Little Falls have all shined their lights to be a ‘ray of hope’ for the student-athletes during the time of no sports and activities.
