2021 Special Olympics
After more than a year of a global pandemic with quarantines, stay-at-home orders and little to celebrate, May 26, 2021 was *just* the SPECIAL [OLYMPICS] day we needed as a district!
Over 100 athletes, pals, families and staff gathered in the stadium to compete and cheer on our Special Olympics athletes. After the typical spring competition (usually held at Souderton HS) was canceled due to the ongoing pandemic, UP staff rallied to plan an event for our students on their home turf.
There were three different competitions (a sprint, softball toss and long jump), as well as a good-natured relay race/obstacle course at the conclusion of the competition. Thanks to all who made this special day happen, including the staff, pals and members of the UP softball team (who helped facilitate events for the athletes).
