Buddies needed for Special Olympics program
The Middleborough YMCA will start a new session of its Special Olympics program for special needs children between the ages of 2 and 7 on Jan. 13. Peer models and volunteer “buddies” are needed. Participants will learn new skills each week, including throwing, kicking, and catching. During the final week of the 10-week session, children will showcase their skills in an Olympics competition.
