Over 175 Special Olympic athletes enjoyed partnering with a Brophy freshman to participate in relay races, board games, basketball, football and a dance party, all held on the Brophy High School campus.

Bob Ryan, Brophy’s principal offers, “This year the morning began with a sing-a-long and mini-cheer camp hosted by student council, which quickly became a favorite of our Special Olympic athletes.”

“The day is win-win for the athletes and Brophy students. So much joy and camaraderie everywhere you look,” said Paul Fisko, Brophy assistant principal for ministry.

“The freshmen class takes the lead that day and makes wonderful memories for all of us.”
