JBA Airmen help out at Special Olympics DC Bowling Tournament

By Senior Airman Jalene A. Brooks Air Force District of Washington Public Affairs Office

Joint Base Andrews volunteered for the Special Olympics DC Adult Bowling Tournament in Hyattsville, Maryland, March 4. The event is just one part of a global movement that unleashes the human spirit every day through the empowerment and joy of sport.

Special Olympics tackles the inactivity, stigma, isolation, and injustice that people with intellectual disabilities face. JBA Airmen are proud to volunteer with an organization that goes far beyond sports events, driving social change that enables full social participation for people with ID. Special Olympics creates an inclusive culture through unified sports which allows for people with and without intellectual disabilities to play on the same field.
