Designed to give kids with special disabilities to participate in activities with others, the program seeks to make all feel included. Participants showed up in big numbers yesterday, ranging in the ages of elementary school all the way up through high school.
"It's always great to see how much fun the kids are having and knowing you're making a difference in their life is a rewarding feeling", said Aleecia Pace, a student at North Platte High who regularly volunteers.
Throughout the course of the year, they hold several other events with other sports and activities, encouraging kids from all ages to participate.
