Coe Special Olympics Recap

From Kelsey Jipp, Coe SAAC:

"Here are some pictures from our Coe Special Olympics we held on Saturday, April 21st.  There were over 150 Special Olympics athletes and 50 student-athlete volunteers.  Volunteers served as mentors, race starters, timers and high-fivers.  The weather may not have been ideal but that did not stop us from having a great time!"
