According to Jeannie Sprayberry, director of Special Education, the purpose of this event is to contribute positively to the physical, social and psychological development of special children. The participants will gain confidence and build an image associated with success rather than failure.
In addition, it shows the athletes, as well as the public, what tremendous accomplishments these special students can achieve if given the opportunity.
The public is invited to attend this annual event which is coordinated by Albert Norwood and Brad Lightsey of Batesville’s City Parks.
