I had the pleasure of putting on a police camp for special needs kids last week and had a blast. These kids are simply amazing!

This whole event is something very nice and special. I just wish there was more stuff going on like this. People don't seem to realize much how little things can mean so much to some people.

Yeah, I really love the Special Olympics. Been volunteering at Track and Field for 5 or 6 years and swimming for 2. Truely amazing. One of the kids will fall down while running, and the rest will all stop to help him get up.

I've volunteered for Special Olympics a few times, I've also worked with kids with Autism and enjoyed the experience very much
