This weekend the Gardner Gold Special Olympics team sent delegates to the Kansas Special Olympic Summer Games. The athletes who competed in Aquatics and Track & Field events:
Alex Valverde, Cooper Olson, Ryan Toews, Alexis Chambers, Eagan Boren, Dominic Jaramillo, Luke Mayo, Janae Gustafson.
Team Peer Volunteers: Elysia Valverde and Julie Pogue
They brought home a combined 6 Gold, 11 Silver, 7 Bronze, 6 4th place, and 1 5th place.
Not only did these athletes represent the community by bringing home plenty of medals, but more importantly, they did so by showing the best sportsmanship, team spirit, and they had a great time doing it.
