I am a peer trainer for Joliet central, and I will be the first so say this is an experience I will never forget. Being a part of the games assisting my partner and other students and peers has given me great pride. All of the schools were very welcoming and nice to everyone, it makes for a very comforting and excepting environment. Thank you to all of those who participated, it's an honor to have been a part of the 2013 Special Games!
