Special Olympics 2008

Every year, Special Olympics of Miami Dade County organizes a Summer competition. Special Olympics is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering individuals with intellectual disabilities to become physically fit, productive and respected members of society through sports training and competition.

I always come to cheer the special athletes from Miami Southwest Senior High School who compete in the soccer matches. Two of them are seen here in the purple soccer uniforms posing with the University of Miami's mascot Sebastian the Fighting Ibis. The man with the #1 shirt taking the photo is their soccer coach. It takes a lot of dedication and good hearts from many persons to make these events happen year after year. My hat's off to the athletes, to the organizers and to the volunteers.
