Benefiting Special Olympics Virginia, the event serves as a unified track and field meet where students with and without intellectual disabilities partner to train and represent their school at the high school sports complex. This event promotes physical activity, forming new friendships, encourages teamwork, and inspires leadership and unity among our entire school community.
Thursday, hundreds of students from Prince George County's five elementary schools, J.E.J. Moore Middle School, N.B. Clements Junior High School and Prince George High School descended on the athletic grounds to participate and volunteer in this event. Watching on from the stadium seating, friends, families, and community members cheered on participants and offered smiles and words of encouragement.
The Feet Meet even featured special appearances by Nutzy, the star mascot of the Richmond Flying Squirrels baseball team, and a number of community organizations supporting the event, including 7-Eleven, Navy Federal Credit Union, Virginia American Water, and the John Randolph Foundation.
Prince George County Public Schools appreciates the support of our community, business partners, and the entire school community for making the Feet Meet an incredible and memorable event for our students.
