Special athletes on a special day

Shooting high school sports is always special.

Even more special is shooting a group of special athletes at the start of a Floyd County High School multi-team track meet Wednesday.  They tossed softballs and raced.

They made a special day even more so.

Many more photos in next week’s Floyd Press.

One Response to Special athletes on a special day

  1. The therapy dog group my (now retired) dog and I belonged to participated in Virginia Special Olympics annual tournaments in Richmond. Athletes met and interacted with the dogs while waiting for their events or while on breaks. Don’t know who enjoyed it the most – us or the athletes. We also had trading cards of our dogs that the athletes loved – and looked forward to each year. Wonderful experiences!
