All Sports Day 2019


It’s so fun. I mean I think after doing
it for the first year and being a part of Special Olympics my whole life – my mom
got me involved in it when I was really young, it’s just such a breath of fresh
air to be able to stop like the everyday go-go-go and kind of live in the moment
and be realizing that you’re not only making student-athletes’ days
but you’re also making these Special Olympians days as well and it’s such an
inclusive environment which I mean who doesn’t agree that the world needs more
of that? – Spring time in Chicago tends to be outside it was a no-brainer
soccer is probably our most popular sport about a student and for them just
playing with the soccer team out there it was so much fun
oh the energy was great people were like everywhere we’re scoring goals it was
great guys were having fun the kids are having fun being able to hang out with
them just in general was great but also being able to show them the soccer play
a little with them was also a really cool experience so I’m hoping they got
something out of this and had a lot of fun today. -It was really fun, I was really trying to make sure that all the kids was engaged and were like
participating and weren’t just standing around so I was just trying to make sure they were engaged. -I do run track but I’m not a thrower so it’s just pretty good to see
them get into it we had a couple actually throw the beanbags over the
wall so that looks pretty awesome you see them get engaged and get into it and
it was also a bit competitive too so that was great to see -you know when everybody
starts to get together you see some athletes over there and then some
Special Olympians over here but then once you start going and they get in their
events everybody’s one and everybody is doing it together and they’re kind of
competing no you see the golfers running with them
you see development staff throwing shot put with them it’s just such an unique opportunity to kind of bring everyone to the same playing field and it’s so
nice for them to all get involved
