Walter Lawson's Celebrates Olympic Achievements

« Return to News

It's the summer of the Olympics, and in Illinois the Special Olympics are also in full swing! 

Illinois Special Olympics sponsored a MATP event again this year with great results.  More than 60 individuals registered for the event.  While typically held outside, due to the heat our Olympics were held inside for a different take on this annual event. Fortunately, we utilized our classroom areas and made each room a sporting event.

Families and community volunteers joined the fun assisting our athletes through nine activities designed with consideration of each athletes ability. At the finish line, each athlete received their Olympic participation metal and had their picture taken with the official Olympic banner.

 Great job athletes!
