Special Olympics

This year for youth conference our ward volunteered for the special olympics that were held here in Cedar City. It was so much fun and such a humbling experience. To see this athletes and their excitement in being able to participate in this event was just amazing. The thing that I admired most about these people is there is no competitive spirit in them what-so-ever! They are just there to have fun and be a part of such a great event. During races they would stop and help someone running next to them and give eachother high fives after the race. It was just such a special experience not only for us as leaders but for the youth in our ward. So I am very grateful for the opportunity I had to volunteer and meet some of these special spirits that are living in our world today. It was AMAZING!!
