Events

Special Olympics Day is a Big Hit for Students, Staff & Parents

On April 17, 2015, two busloads of enthusiastic students and staff from NRIC rode to the RI College Murray Center for the Special Olympics Motor Activities Training program (MATP), a program for athletes not typically included in traditional Special Olympics programming.  Student athletes got to practice their skills in such activities as bowling, golf, basketball, baseball, volleyball and soccer.  RI College student volunteers did a wonderful, enthusiastic job of welcoming and cheering all students from the Collaborative and assisted the Special Olympic athletes at the various sports stations that were set up for the morning events.  Several parents also attended the events to cheer on and assist their children which added to the heartwarming, enjoyable nature of the morning.  Click here for more info.
