JH Rose hosts Pitt County Special Olympics

Posted: Updated:

It's a day in which everyone involved will not soon forget. Today was the 37th Pitt County Special Olympics. Athletes from across the east gathered at JH Rose High School to compete in nearly 20 sporting events.

The athletes said this is something they look forward to all year long. They ran in races, competed in a long jump and also threw in a softball toss among many other events.

When they weren't competing they were getting the face painted or enjoying the friendship of the many volunteers out there to help.

Athletes and volunteers say it was a fun day for everyone involved.

9 On Your Side's Brian Bailey emceed today's spring games.
