Conner's Track & Field Day

Conner getting ready to throw the softball.
 Our nephew, Conner, participated in the Special Olympics track and field day last Friday.  Keith and Cara went to Wayne to cheer for Conner and the other athletes.  It was a beautiful day for a track meet with Keith and Cara both coming home with sunburns.  
 Conner got to participate in three events at the track meet.  Conner was in the softball throw, the 100 M dash and a relay.  Keith said that students from Wayne State College and many volunteers helped with the event.  Cara even commented that some Wayne Public School's students came over to the track with their classes to cheer on the athletes.  Keith said that one athlete from Wayne had his class come over and hold up signs for him.

 Many of the athletes waved at the crowd during the meet.  There were two athletes from Bloomfield participating in the Special Olympics.

Take care,


  1. What a special day! I am sure the sunburn was worth it!

  2. What a great event! So glad Keith and Cara could be there to cheer Conner on!
