A Day with The Special Olympics of Miami-Dade County

On November 5th, my Ayudan Team, Pulse spent the day with Olympians at Gulliver High school. These inspiring athletes of The Special Olympics of Miami-Dade County where training for the states competition in Softball.

 

Our Ayudan team members hit the field aiding the students in practicing catching, pitching, fielding, and hitting.  Working with these athletes was an incredible and heartwarming experience. Their determination, skill and love for sports couldn’t be matched. Many of the Athletes were better at the game than our own front office staff!

 

The Marlins proudly support the Special Olympics. “The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities*, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.”
