Physical Education Department Volunteers with Special Olympics

Norfolk Public Schools and Special Olympics teamed up last month to show hundreds of special needs children a great time during an event affectionately called, “Little Feet Meet.”  The event took place at Crossroads Elementary School in Norfolk. The children, including those who are in wheelchairs, were paired with buddies from Norfolk State’s Health, Physical Education and Exercise Science department and other organizations. They were treated to games including hula hoop, sack racing and crawling and scooting through tunnels. Special Olympics Virginia – Tidewater Region, ODU’s Therapeutic Recreation and Physical Education majors, Norfolk State’s exercise science majors helped make the 3rd Annual Big Feet Meet a successful event.
