I volunteered at the Special Olympics today- it was so much fun!
My "buddy's" name was Anthony. Because he uses both a walker and a stroller, my new friend Amy and I were both his buddies!
Anthony got 2nd place in his heat in the tennis ball throw- which he LOVED- though he wasn't a big fan of the 25m walk. I think he was just happy it was over! He kept saying, "Race over!"
I would encourage you to find out when your local Special Olympics are and sign up! You don't need any special training or anything- just show up with a smiling face! You won't regret it!
