Did you know that only 1 and 10 adults with intellectual disabilities will be gainfully employed? However, if they take part in the Special Olympics, that number changes to 3 out of 10!
Special Olympics uses sports as a vehicle to empower athletes and helps us realize that we have much more in common with individuals with disabilities than we think.
After a long day of cleaning, organizing, and helping prepare for the Winni Dip, NHS travelled to Nashua to watch a unified basketball game. We cheered our hearts out and were in awe of the athlete's determination, heart, and pure love of the game.
Can't wait for day two!!
