Special Olympics Hellas Educational Program: “Play Unified. Learn Unified”

On Tuesday, October 15, Athens College and Psychico College students participated in the Special Olympic Hellas educational program, “Play United. Learn United,” aimed at raising awareness and respect for inclusive sports and youth, as well creating relationships and partnerships.  Unified track and field events in 8x50 relay races, long jump in pairs and vortex throw in pairs were held in Stephanos Delta Stadium.


 
 

The global program “Play Unified. Learn Unified” allows people of all ages, with and without intellectual disabilities, to participate in group sports together.  Programmatic work in inclusive sports help those engaged to develop their skills, improve their techniques, challenge one another, create friendships and, above all, learn to coexist.
