Special Olympics South Africa Unified® Sports Day

By Ancilla Smith

Special Olympics South Africa together with the Bona Lesedi Disability project and the South Africa National Equestrian Schools Association hosted a Unified® Sports day at Shumbashaba. An opening ceremony was conducted with athletes parading in the sporting arena after which they participated in Bocce, 7-aside soccer and volley ball. Over 100 athletes participated in the event enthusiastically supported by willing volunteers. This event truly captured the spirit of unity and inclusion and all the athletes were thrilled with their medals. The closing ceremony was completed with a friendship circle and smiles all round.
