SAAC Hosts Special Olympic Event at Holiday Relays
Dec. 13: The St. Lawrence University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee hosted a Special Olympics event on Saturday, December 10 in conjunction with the track and field team's 2011 Holiday Relays.
The NCAA partnered with the Special Olympics this year in support of raising awareness at the national and institutional levels. Over 20 Special Olympics athletes competed in races on Saturday morning prior to the collegiate event, with a reception held following the competition.
"I am thrilled that we were able to host the Special Olympics today, and want to thank all of the competitors for giving a great effort," said Franco Bari, St. Lawrence Coordinator of Student-Athlete Development. "We had a fantastic turnout from student-athletes on campus who wanted to show their support and I hope the energy in the Newell Field House created a great experience for the athletes."
