A local private high school has been hosting the Mecklenburg County Special Olympics for many years. The students get the day off from classes to volunteer as a buddy to one of the athletes. Ben was lucky again this year and had two students with him for the day.
We watched the motorized wheelchair race.
And this foot race. Smiles and cheers for everyone that day.
Next year when Ben is eight, he will be able to compete in one of the sports. I look forward to this!
