As part of her 4th year leadership project, Megan Won organized a group of volunteers to assist with the Special Olympics of Missouri (SOMO) flag football game yesterday at Missouri State University. Volunteers helped with everything such as field set-up, operating the scoreboard, officiating, and a special group who were the ‘fans in the stands’ and cheered on these special athletes! SOMO hosts multiple sporting events throughout the state each year with the goal of giving children and adults with intellectual disabilities an opportunity for physical fitness and a chance to develop friendships with their families, other Special Olympic athletes, and the community.
If you live in the Springfield, MO area and would like to be involved in this event, you are in luck! There will be another flag football game this upcoming Sunday, Sept 25th beginning at 3:00pm on the MSU Betty and Bobby Allison Recreational Fields. All are welcome to stop by! Nice work organizing the volunteers, Megan!
