Friday was a fun and spirit-filled day for students of the RISE Center on the University of Alabama’s campus.
RISE hosted its annual “Rise with the Tide” pep rally.

Students got to jam out to UA’s pep band, interact with UA cheerleaders, Crimsonettes and even love on Big Al at the event.

“Most of our children are Alabama fans,” RISE assistant director Bailey Chambers said. “They come dressed in their cheerleading outfits and their jerseys. They love seeing Big Al and the cheerleaders.”

This pep rally is put on once a year the day before an Alabama home game. 

What’s great about this event is not only does the pep band perform, but they also meet with our families and our children for personal interaction, which is so fun for the children,” Chambers said. “It just gives them something different in their day at RISE.”
