Vallejo Times-Herald: Students celebrate 40th Vallejo Special Olympics

By Lanz Christian BaƱes

Some did the limbo. Others ran — and ran fast.

However they moved, hundreds of Vallejo and Benicia students celebrated the 40th annual Vallejo Special Olympics on Thursday.

“I love it,” said Christopher Gordon, a 12-year-old Hogan Middle School student who came in fourth place during a hurdle event.

Christopher, who has Down Syndrome, added that he enjoyed having his friends and family at the event on Corbus Field at Vallejo High School.

The ability to compete and do activities on the field is what makes the Special Olympics so, well, special, said Beth Majchrzak, director of special education for the Vallejo City Unified School District.
