BVU's Special Olympics Event a Big Success

On May 4, the BVU SAAC organized a Special Olympics Track & Field Day at Faith, Hope & Charity, a school in Storm Lake for students with special needs.  It was a beautiful, sunny day -- perfect weather for running, beanbag toss, hula hoops, and playing with a huge parachute.  The student-athletes and the Special Olympians shared their skills and worked out their bodies, then topped it off with some cupcake decorating.  Special credit goes to BVU’s SAAC secretary, Kylie Woodley, for organizing this event.
