    Great news Ford. I have a cousin who participates in the Special Olympics every year. It's one of the greatest programs ever. He's again a little closer to his goal.

    The best of luck to Jacob!

    Today Jacob competed in the Regional Special olympics. In standing long jump (gold), 50 meter dash (gold) , soft ball thow (gold) and the 4X100 relay (silver), he also competed in the tennis ball throw (a mistake by his coach) but he won silver in that as well.Tomorrow he plays in 3on 3 basketball.(gold)

    Congrats! I'd be interested in hearing the story about his disability and how he was able to make it and qualify. I'm a big fan of the Special Olympics.
