Girls Track & Field Team Dedicates Sundays to Special Olympics Project

May 01 2018

 

Nicole Aponte ’20, a veteran member of the Kellenberg cross country and track and field teams, has initiated a Kellenberg-based “Special Olympic” team. Aponte has coordinated and motivated the volunteer spirit of her energetic teammates. Several team members meet every Sunday throughout this Spring to coach and mentor these wonderful young special Olympians in the nuances of track and field, and the joy of focusing on a task together. Junior and nine-season veteran Erin Doherty ’19 summed up the volunteer spirit of her teammates and her commitment to the “Rockets” team when she said, “this has given all of us the opportunity to pass on the sport that has given us so many good memories to others in need.”
