In 1969, some very motivated and philanthropically minded members of a campus Greek organization came up with a big idea to raise funds and awareness for a local charity. George Heath, Greater Newark Boys & Girls Club Board Member and Division Manager for Reybold Group recalls "the event started in 1969, by the Pi Lamda Phi Fraternity Omega Delta Chapter at The Pennsylvania State University Altoona Campus to benefit the Easter Seals Society of Blair County. As of 1991, Big Bounce raised over $358,000 for the event and during my two year (1990- 1992) period on the campus we raised close to $40K".
It is through Heath, that this great idea is getting a rebirth in Delaware, known as Big Bounce Delaware!
