  Students Volunteer for Special Olympics


Delaware State University students helped make it a special day for a host of youngsters as the University once again hosted the April 1 Special Olympics Delaware’s Basketball Skills competition in the Memorial Hall Gymnasium.

About 50 DSU students volunteered their time to coordinate the competition events for children from 13 different Central Delaware public schools. The Special Olympics athletes competed in the following events; the Target Pass, Ten-Meter Dribble, Spot Shot and Speed Dribble.

Special Olympics Delaware is an organization that changes lives by promoting understanding, acceptance and inclusion between people with and without intellectual disabilities.
