Special Olympics athletes show off their skills in track and field
MOORHEAD, Minn. — It was the perfect day for student athletes at Moorhead High School Wednesday morning.
They held a track and field competition for Special Olympics.
Students were able to show off their skill in events like the 50 meter dash and long jump.
Organizers say it's a great opportunity to showcase talent and encourage inclusiveness.
"I think it showcases what they can do, instead of what they can't, and it gives them a day to shine," says organizer, Diane Brendemuhl.
About 400 students participated.
