COSCA holds special Olympics for the kids

The Lasallian community welcomed 400 special kids who participated in the mini-Olympics held at the DLSU-M Football Field on January 20.

Organized by the Center for Social Concern and Action (COSCA) through the Lasallian Outreach and Volunteer Effort, For the Kids 2002 (FTK 2002) carried the theme, “Si Ate, si Kuya, Kasama Ko—Ang Saya!” Volunteers from the faculty, staff, and students were given the opportunity to reach out to special kids who have physical, mental, and developmental disabilities.

The program sought to enhance the physical activities of these children through sports like basketball, running, and walking. The kids were also treated to some parlor games such as sack race, newspaper dance, obstacle course and other interactive games. FTK 2002 serves as a venue for healthy competition and interaction among special children and members of the Lasallian community.

What started out as a supplementary activity of COSCA and the Physical Education Department in 1986, with some 50 kids participating, has grown to become the biggest socio-event in the university.

This year marks FTK’s 12th year, serving thousands of special children and Lasallians who have connected and enjoyed the games together through the years.
