High-fives from Team Davis

Thanks to the Aggie football players and UC Davis Campus Recreation and Unions!

Team Davis — our local, all-volunteer, nonprofit organization that provides athletic, social and other activities to about 150 individuals with developmental disabilities — is brimming with appreciation for our friends on the UC Davis campus.

We just had our fourth annual football clinic, hosted by Campus Recreation and Unions at Aggie Stadium, where the Aggie football players put our participants and participants from other local Special Olympics teams through a number of drills and then organized a game. We saw lots of hugs and high-fives between our Special Olympics athletes and the football players.

Later the Aggie Band-uh came out to play — icing on the cake! It was a great team effort — making it a very successful day!

Thank you so much to Heather Zoller, Andy Ramirez, Ryan Walsh, Meg Drescher, Erica Brown, Brian Luu and Laura Hall for making this incredible event happen. See the following video for a taste of how great the day was: https://docs.google.com/a/ucdavis.edu/file/d/0B7PXZHVxtGQfcHh4OWNIUTgxZDA/edit?usp=drive_web.
