Students and alumni from Wakulla county schools came together today to compete and we caught up with them on the track, running sprints and relays. More than 30 special needs athletes participated in this year's Olympic games.

The event began with an opening parade including different schools and organizations in Wakulla County. Students who won today's games will go on and compete in Special Olympics at Leon High School in April.

Wakulla High School student Pamela Gay says, "It's fun because we get to see other people and meet other people against other counties."

James Crum from Wakulla High School says, "This is an opportunity for us to come out here and show the people what we can do."

    To J Timney: while your post was in jest, you should know that Wakulla co. does an amazing job of caring for their special needs citizens. And quite honestly I find your joking at this article to be in poor taste.
