Hundreds of special athletes took to the track Wednesday morning in Greenville as the Pitt County Special Olympics Spring Games were held at J.H. Rose High School.
Developmentally disabled children of all ages from around the county competed in events like the 50 and 100 yard dashes, relay races, and softball distance throwing.
Winners were awarded ribbons and had their names called out as they stood on a podium just like the real Olympic games.
Hundreds of volunteers made the event possible and say the effort is well worth it.
Volunteers tell us they're already looking forward to next year.
