In our community there are people who are ignored. These people tend to be specially challenged. You do not see people stop to have a conversation with the bagger at Safeway just because he is different. So for the past year i have been involved in Special Olympics. This year I am so excited for the season with the athletes. After the last season and the description of how much fun it was almost every kid i know wants to get involved so my goal this year is to get as many people involved as possible. With the number of athletes growing I think its important to get more people involved. The smile on the athletes faces when they get to go to state and win games is amazing. It just feels good to know I can help put a smile on someones face. And the way they are treated by so many people is ridiculous these athletes are discriminated against almost everyday of their life. They are people to and need to be treated like people. The team also has choosen a team name and has weekly newspapers with athletes of the week. This is what i do on my Sundays. And my goal is to have 1 volunteer for every two athletes.
