Giving a High Five to Special Olympics
This past Saturday, five DYS youth and two staff volunteered at the Special Olympics Flag Football Playoffs at Dicks Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City. The volunteers were exceptional leaders to the AMAZING athletes, supporting them on and off the field. The youth set up for the event, helped put away everything after the event, ran errands, kept score and helped with cheering the teams. The youth's help was appreciated so much, they were invited back in early November for the next round of competitions.
This is just one of many examples of youth in the Division's care demonstrating their commitment to supporting the community.
