May 27th was a big day for the students in the Clackamas County Education School District Life Enrichment Education Program as they got together for their annual Spring Track Meet. This track meet brings together all of the special education students of Clackamas County Schools to celebrate the spirit of competition and personal achievement together through track and field events.
When Bob and Dennis first heard about this amazing local event from Steve Amon’s OPB Field Guide, they knew right away that Bob’s Red Mill would love to be able to help out in some way with this amazing event. This year we were excited to be able to compliment all the volunteer work done by the amazing teachers, parents and local community that really make this event possible.
As these athletes competed around the track, you could feel the excitement in the air in every event from the opening parade to the closing ceremony. We were proud to be able to be a part of making sure that every athlete was able to earn a medal for their hard work and weeks of training and preparation.
We hope to be there again in 2011 to cheer as each of these amazing kids crosses the finish line!
