Lyncourt Students Participate in 2017 Special Olympics
Lyncourt students were cheering on our athletes as they left to participate in the Special Olympics at North Syracuse Central School District. A Parade of Athletes will kick off the day at approximately 10:30 a.m. with athletic competitions lasting until approximately 1:30 p.m.
Hundreds of athletes from 12 local school districts and OCM BOCES will be competing in track and field events including the 50m, 100m, 200m and 400m dashes, running long jump, standing broad jump, softball throw and shot put. There will also be adapted events, including walking with and without assistance, as well as wheelchair races.
Special Olympics games promote fitness, coordination and cardiovascular improvement. Additional benefits include self-confidence, discipline, and self-esteem. Please come and cheer on the athletes!
