The Arc celebrates athletes and volunteers at the Athletic Banquent

By Karen Daniels 

Smiles abound all around as these special olympians show off their trophies!

Smiles abound all around as these special olympians show off their trophies!

There was a “warm, fuzzy feeling in the air” at The Arc’s Annual Athletic Banquet on June 28, at the Missouri City Community Center. Two-hundred and thirty people attended the event that celebrates the participants and says thank you to the volunteers. The Arc provides quality of life for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. At the banquet, the bowling league, Special Olympics’ dignitaries, and the “incredible” volunteers were honored with awards while they dined on BBQ, and danced the afternoon away with a DJ. Margo Pasko, Director of Transition Programs, said, “Everyone was so happy and left with a smile on their face.”

The athletic groups are open to adult individuals post high school, up to any age. There are 8 different sports sponsored by The Arc: Bocce, basketball, volleyball, bowling, track & field, softball, aquatics, and their newest sport offered, golf. Currently, The Arc is looking for more volunteers for this activity. Riverbend Country Club has generously donated the cart and green fees, but more golf cart drivers are needed to safely expand enrollment.

Bocce ball is picking up interest, thanks to two volunteers from Chevron Corporation. Beginning in mid-July, this activity will start up again at the First Colony Community Association, by the lake, on Tuesday evenings. Coming soon, for the first time, will be a 5-County regional bocce tournament on September 7. Plans are being finalized, but the event will be held at one of the “Sugar Land area school campuses.” In all sports combined, approximately 85-100 individuals participate at this time, ranging from ages 18-70 (no age limit). Membership is annual: $20 – individual; $50 – family. The Arc provides uniforms, meals, and other logistical needs.
