Special Olympics, Spring Games,
May 3rd at Thornwood High School

This Spring Lemont Firefighters and Police Officers joined forces with Lemont High School students in an awesome training camp to assist in developing physical fitness skills in preparation for the Special Olympics, Spring Games, held May 3rd at Thornwood High School.

For weeks leading up to the games, off duty and shift police and fire personnel arranged to meet the athletes on the Lemont High School Track and Football fields. Twice a week; firefighters and police officers ran laps, played catch, and geared up the kids-conveying the importance of training and preparing for the challenges ahead.  Together with the student volunteers, Fire and Police department personnel reinforced the value of teamwork through the transformative power and joy of sport; and demonstrated at Special Olympics everyone succeeds.  Both the participants and volunteers were thankful for the opportunity to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with each other.

Bright and early the morning of regionals, Lemont’s athletes were escorted by a procession of police cars and fire engine’s with lights and sirens through town as they made their way to the Games.  A large contingent of Lemont backers traveled to South Holland to share the joy of watching the athletes compete in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults.   Events included competing for fastest 50 & 100 meter runs as well as longest tennis & softball throws.  Athletes who qualify at their local Spring Games event will be eligible to compete at the largest Special Olympics Illinois athletic event of the year, the Summer Games, held June 13-15 in Normal.
