Special Olympics Federal District (D.F.) Celebrated EKS Day Dancing

By Paola Martinelli

Special Olympics athletes in Mexico City along with their families celebrated the Mexican EKS Day. With a salsa dance, and pop music band all the athletes and their families danced during the big party to celebrate Eunice Kennedy Shriver. The party was held in the Marakita lounge. Each club brought Mexican dishes, and a parent was the DJ of the costume event, recording the whole fair in which athletes, volunteers and families enjoyed a day of fun.
