Students Participate in 4th Annual Day with the Dukes

On Saturday, September 25, 2010 Special Olympics Athletes from around the region came to participate in the 4th annual Day with the Dukes. More than 25 Special Olympics Athletes were joined by members of Psychology Peer Advising, Chi Sigma Iota, and Aletheia Church. The Special Olympics Athletes met and practiced with JMU athletes including members of the JMU football team, JMU men and women’s basketball team, and JMU women’s soccer team. The Special Olympics Athletes were excited to get autographs from everyone they met! Dinner was provided by JMU dining services. The Special Olympics Athletes attended the JMU vs. Liberty football game, where one of the members flipped the coin at the beginning of the game! All of the Athletes went home exhausted and were excited about telling their stories about the adventures they had throughout the day!
