The first basketball Scrimmage, organized by Special Olympics Burlington, Burlington Public Library, Corpus Christi High School and Burlington Parks and Recreation was a fantastic success. It took place on Saturday May 20, at Corpus Christi.
Burlington’s Special Olympics basketball team, the Flames, played against members of the community, including students from Corpus Christi and two local police officers.
Some of our Special Olympics athletes attend Corpus Christi school – and the team was warmly welcomed, with an opening address by the Mayor and Ward Councillor. The afternoon was live streamed on You Tube, to promote inclusivity while creating awareness for the wonderful friendships and community that we are a part of!
