Cicero Hosts Special Olympics

Cicero-North Syracuse High School hosted a Special Olympics today for area high schools. Around 200 to 300 students participated in activities ranging from track and field to wheelchair races and a morning parade that kicked off the daylong event.

Teachers said students prepare for this event all year long in their physical education classes. They say the activity is very beneficial in developing their motor skills. Parent volunteers and participating schools provide support for the event.

“It’s a great event that all the kids enjoy every year. My son loves seeing all his friends,” said one parent.

Kids from elementary to high school play in the games.

N-C-C News Reporter Aujai Smith went to check out the excitement today.
