A big win to the virtual Special Olympics!

Up and down, left to right, and all the way to the finish line! The virtual Special Olympics, which took place last Saturday, January 16, were a success. It featured 27 ASF students who donated their time and skills to drive a series of classes that made us all sweat.

With the Upper School National Honor Society (NHS) in charge of logistics, the ASF campus has hosted Special Olympics events in previous years. In 2021, because of the pandemic, we went virtual and got a big turnout!

Thanks to this big effort, Special Olympics Mexico will be awarding ASF with the Special Olympics Unified Champion School recognition, which acknowledges schools that foster "inclusive sports, inclusive youth leadership opportunities, and whole-school engagement."

Thank you to everyone who joined us for this morning workout alongside Special Olympics athletes and other members of the community!
