Juan smiles for the camera at Special Olympics in April.

Sports fanatics around the world watch the Olympics religiously, and some strive to actually be in the Olympics someday, but some children do not have that same opportunity, so Forsyth County holds their annual spring Special Olympics. Forsyth County Special Olympics is held at the end of April every year for 3rd through 12th graders. The day is full of games and activities for these children, and at the end of the day all of them receive ribbons for their place in each game. All of the children that participated had a smile on their face throughout the entire day, and they all received awards. I was lucky enough to be a buddy for Special Olympics this year, and it was quite a rewarding experience.
