The race for Special Olympics

The race for Special Olympics


So our field study is called Race For
Special O and basically we’re just trying to create an experience for
Special Olympic athletes that they haven’t had before, so what we are doing
is sending Special Olympic athletes to the Michigan International Speedway to
attend the NASCAR race. You know they get to go down to the infield, they get to go
free of charge, so they get to spend time with their family and other athletes
just to create a little like once-in-a-lifetime experience for them.
Some of our biggest challenges I would say time management definitely there’s a
lot of pieces that are moving and you have to be able to adjust to different
people and different settings in different situations. I think it just
helps me give them a foot in the door of getting the fundraising experience
bettered my communication skills and just working in a team because I’m right
of where I go in the future it’s everything is like team oriented. You
know these athletes you know they’re absolutely amazing and they deserve
people to go help them and so for me that you can give a little bit of my
time towards them that’s you know that’s it’s something that I’ll remember
forever. I’m really excited to see the athletes just out on the racetrack down
on pit row and just see how excited they are because I heard it was a great time
last year so I’m really excited to be a part of it this year.
