ROTONDA WEST — Individuals with intellectual disabilities and their families and caregivers gathered for a day of fun at the Rotonda Elks Lodge Saturday. Softball, bocce, soccer, track and field and other activities filled the day.
“This is an opportunity for people to come out and meet the athletes and for athletes to try some different sports,” explained Gena Davis, director of Special Olympics of Charlotte County. “We understand there are lots of potential athletes in the Englewood area. We’re holding this field day to recruit the volunteers we need to run future competitions here. Our biggest need is for swimming coaches. We have time available at the pool at San Casa, but we need coaches. We can offer free certification, but we need volunteers who have some experience with swimming.”
