Recently at Sayreville War Memorial High School, The Special Olympics sponsored  (with the help of Marcus Ivy and the soccer team) a wonderful and successful unified sports soccer game. This event encouraged kids with different disabilities, mainly autism, to participate in a team sport.

Sayreville has had Unified Sports for about three years now. One of the advisors, Marcus Ivy, stated that he saw a community of teamwork. Everyone looked like they were having a great time. Patrick Lawniczak, a junior who played, said he loved it and would like if there was another event. He made lots of new friends and explained how fun it was.

This was a great opportunity for all the kids and hopefully there will be another event this year.

    We moved to Sayreville fall 2017 and our son is a sophomore at SWMHS. Ian has autism. Ian is going to participate in the basketball offering. How do we find out about more events he can participate in?
    Is there a summer camp available for him?.

    Thank you,
    Toni

    Hi! My name is Theresa Chuntz and I am the Echo Lites newspaper adviser. I don’t know much about sports or summer camp offerings, but if it’s alright with you, I can pass along your e-mail address to someone who can give you more information.
