LHS students serve as Special Olympics buddies


April 17, 2013 - More than 175 Lindbergh High School volunteers recently were paired with buddies from area elementary schools for Special Olympics softball games at the Affton Athletic Association's ball fields, according to a district news release.

Buddies enjoyed a beautiful day in the sun playing softball and other games, including Hot Wheels races, face painting, cup bowling and pig races.

Special Olympics allows students to compete in sports at their own ability level, according to the release.

The event was planned by the Lindbergh High School Student Council, whose members served as referees for the softball games.

"It's fun helping out the school and getting to know all the kids," Eric Kalfus, STUCO member and master of ceremonies for the event, stated in the release. "It was a lot of work setting up the Special Olympics, but it's all for a good cause and that's a good reason to do it."
