The Special Olympics Motor Activity Training Program is designed for athletes who are unable to participate in official Special Olympics sport competitions because of their skill and/or functional abilities. The Motor Activity Training Program is designed to prepare athletes -- including those with severe or profound intellectual disability and significant physical disabilities -- for sport-specific activities appropriate for their ability levels.

The event started with the West SILC presenting the Ellie-Mae Potter memorial torch to NW SILC. The special Olympics oath was shared by a Pennyfields student pressing a Big Mac. We warmed up with a parachute game. All students came out to showcase their skills and gave it their all. We finished with a slow parachute cool down and presented participation medals.
