Hands Helping Others Club Involved with Special Olympics

On April 24, 2015, the CATA “Hands Helping Others” Club acted as athletic buddies for the Special Olympics at Cuthbertson High School. The day began with first meeting the athletes and then walking in a parade. The buddies got to bond with their athletes while they waited for the events to start. Next each athlete participated in two events and then received their awards. “We had such a great time working with sweet kids and giving back to the community,” said 10th grader Kayli Tolleson. Tenth grader Taylor MacLellan agreed, "It was a rewarding time for everyone who came, and at the end of the day  what made us feel good inside were the smiles on these children’s faces.”
