Volunteering for Special Olympics Colorado Red Shirt Rookies Flag Football Program Rocked!
Flag football was the first new sport offered in 12 years! The goal of this pilot program was to integrate students in grades K-5 with or without disabilities and improve relationships and understanding between them. Red Shirt Rookies inclusive programs provide young athletes with exposure to other sports programs outside of school settings. There are additional sports programs, such as basketball in the winter and soccer in the spring, where you could have a blast volunteering, socializing and making a positive impact on children as a mentor, coach or helper! I had a fulfilling experience with my family volunteering and I’m sure you will too. If you are interested in making a difference and volunteering for this exciting program, please contact Allo Perry, Project UNIFY Sports Manager, at 720-359-3106.
