Even before the Opening Ceremony began, we knew it was going to be a gold medal day! Stephano Slack spent the day volunteering with Special Olympics Delaware at the University of Delaware. We arrived bright and early and the weather was perfect for the events. Some of us hit the tennis courts and others manned the track. The athletes were so enthusiastic to compete. We all enjoyed hearing the athletes’ stories and accomplishments. Many had traveled far and wide to attend different Special Olympics events. It was a great time meeting new people and seeing them excel in their chosen sport. By the end of the day we were all so fulfilled – our hearts were full with happiness and our minds were full with memories to last a lifetime! We are already looking forward to next year’s games!
