CARE Takes Home the Gold
Three of our very own clients proudly participated in this year's State Summer Games hosted by Special Olympics Louisiana from May 18- 20, 2018, at Southeastern University in Hammond, LA. The event involved both male and female athletes who competed in Track & Field, Bocce, Powerlifting, and Unified Volleyball. We were proud to sponsor Special Olympics Louisiana as they celebrated their 50th anniversary and support our own athletes who competed in a variety of events.
Our team included three young athletes: Haley R., Logan B., and Shannon C. Haley has participated in Special Olympics Louisiana for several years now competing in Track and Field events like the Long Jump, Shot Put, and Dash. Her family was there to cheer her on every step of the way as she participated in her favorite events with the most contagious smile.
Logan B. is another one of our very own clients who has competed since he was young. Starting at just 8 years old, Logan has taken home both the gold and silver medals in Track & Field events such as T-Ball, Basketball, and Running in years past. This year he stepped away from his favorites and tried something new as he competed in the 400-meter, 200-meter and 4-by-100 relay. With our CARE family there to cheer him on the entire way, Logan continues to make us proud each year.
Another one of our beloved clients, Shannon C., proudly participated in the 2018 Summer Games as well. Shannon first began competing in bowling and has progressively worked her way toward other areas of the competition. This year, she competed in the 25-Meter Dash and the Softball Throw. At the end of the race, she was met by smiles and high fives from her family and favorite CARE employees.
With attendants who are compassionate, helpful, and committed to serving those with special needs, sponsoring Special Olympics Louisiana each year is one of the many ways we are able to touch so many lives.
