Special Olympics Summer Games 2011

Athletes and escorts hamming it up before the event.

Several new and veteran RPJ members volunteered for this year’s Special Olympics Summer Games held May 28-29th at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. This year RPJ provided the bulk of the manpower for Saturday’s Softball Throw event. Members escorted athletes from the staging tent to the field for three rounds of competition. This is the second consecutive year that RPJ manned the area. The next Special Olympics volunteer opportunity for the chapter is the Aukake Classic in Pearl City. More pics after the break.
