Special Olympics athletes are competing in the Area 4 Acadiana North Track Meet today.
The event is going on all day at UL. We’ll have video later today.
The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for all children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
