This fundraiser will help support the District 200 Special Olympics whose philosophy revolves around one primary premise: that young people learn life lessons through participation on a team, during both practices and games.
The Special Olympics gives special individuals the opportunity to compete when in other situations that may not be allowed to or they may not physically be able to. But with this unique setup, the people that participate get to learn invaluable life lessons: teamwork, work ethic, leadership, fair play, and a very important concept, responding to adversity.
Sports are fun. Winning is fun, but the above lessons will allow participants to take something truly important with them into their futures! In addition, the Special Olympics give everyone an opportunity to participate – not just those heroes that will win the game.
The entire community is invited to participate, not just the athletes, coaches, parents, friends and family members. It is truly an event to witness. That is why CUSD200 hopes to get everyone working together; in hope of supporting and teaching those invaluable lessons to the participants and to create and enjoyable experience for the community at large.
Like the old saying goes, “It takes a village…” If you can participate by volunteering that would be great. If you can be there in spirit, that is good, too. Just keep in mind this bowling event. It would be a family fun-filled day!
