A great big THANK YOU to all of our athletes, families, friends, and volunteers who came to support today’s Young Athletes Experience!
To cap off our wonderful afternoon together, we all took a trip to The Blue and enjoyed the Idaho sunshine!

Another successful, inclusive event put on by S.O. College at Boise State!

“Rediscovering My Athlete’s Heart”

 

We can’t help but share this awesome write-up by AC Shilton.  Read here about what she learned about herself as an athlete when volunteering for a local Special Olympics event.

Bravo, AC!  Couldn’t have put it better ourselves!

Congratulations to SO College at BSU and Lisa Beymer’s ED-SPED 250 students for collecting 461 pledge signatures at this year’s SPREAD THE WORD TO END THE WORD Rally on the Quad!

That’s 461 faculty, students, and staff on Boise State’s campus that have pledged never to use the R-word in their vocabulary again.

To date, we have collected a total of 1,080 signatures in 6 hours to end the r-word!  Way to go, SO College!!!
