Spring Special Olympics Practices Begin

May 5, 2011

It’s finally feeling like spring on Cape Cod, which means that it’s time for the start of practices for the Latham Adult Services Special Olympics track and field team! Last Saturday, our athletes were out running, race walking, and throwing shotputs, tennis balls and softballs in preparation for the Cape and Islands area games in May and the Boston summer games in June. All are looking forward to a great season and are in training in hopes of bringing home a medal, and some great memories.

The assessment rounds for our individuals on the Cape Cod Special Olympics swim teams were held at Bridgewater State College last Sunday. All swam their best to qualify for the summer games in Boston. They will be holding a swim-a-thon this coming weekend to raise money for their teams. Any support would be appreciated.

they run for the finish line even if someone else has reached it first.”
