On Friday, April 27, our Special Olympians participated in the 50th annual Special Olympics games at Fitchburg State University! Events included football, an obstacle course, running, throwing, long jump, and a relay race. Our athletes gave their best effort and their family members and friends cheered them on! Several Best Buddies members attendees as well and offered support and encouragement to their Best Buddies partners. A great time was had by all! There was even a dance party during lunch time, where everyone showed off their best dance moves. At the end of the competition, each athlete was presented with a participation medal to celebrate their accomplishments throughout the day.
Thank you to the students, families and staff who attended and helped to make this a memorable day! Thank you to Mrs. Wilson and the Student Council for organizing an amazing send-off, which helped to set the tone of excitement and support for the day. The gifts were thoughtful and very much appreciated!
We’re already looking forward to next year’s games!
