As it gears up for the big day, Indy is proving itself worthy of super-overachiever status. Super Bowl Host Committee subgroups tackling projects to rejuvenate the community are reporting staggering (and ever mounting) figures:
11, 256 … scarves have been knitted through the Super Scarves program, while the goal was 8,000
2,810 … trees have been planted through the 2, 012 Trees program, exceeding the goal by nearly 800
150,000 … estimated volunteer hours that true-blue vols are stacking up before and after the event
These are impressive numbers. Even though the Colts won’t be lining up for the big game, Indy isn’t letting up on its enthusiasm.
