SRVHS Volunteers at Special Olympic Soccer Tournament

This past Saturday, 10 Pledge To Humanity teens went to Santa Rosa for a Special Olympic Soccer Tournament.  We had a long 2 hour drive to get there but it was totally worth it!  We were told that this Special Olympics Soccer Tournament had their largest turn out yet (with athletes coming as far as 5 hours away).  It was amazing to see the happy athletes so excited for the day.  No matter where they placed, they seemed overjoyed to get a metal (regardless of their standings in the event).  There was such a sense of comradery among the athletes as they cheered each other on and congratulated each other.  We all left feeling very thankful for this experience.  We are excited about the connections we made and that we’d be invited to participate in the upcoming basketball tournament in March.   We love Special Olympics and we are looking forward to working with these athletes in the future.
