Wingate University Football Field Day

A large group of Special Olympians and an even larger group of Wingate University football players met head to head on the Wingate track field to run some drills and show off some mad skills.  As part of the United Way Day of Caring the Wingate University football team hosted the Special Olympians and showed their "softer"side.  The football team challenged the Olympians in kicking, passing, and tackling.  I believe the Wingate University team kicker may have even lost his job after one of the Olympians showed him up smile!  It was a wonderful day full of smiles, laughter and encouragement!  A special thanks to the Wingate University football team for showing true character and sportsmanship in making our Special Olympians feel like a part of the team!  We appreciate you all!  Can't wait till next year!  Go Bulldogs!!
