Kansas University student David McKenzie has volunteered with the Douglas County Special Olympics for only a few months, but he’s hooked.
The local Special Olympics group offers many ways to get involved. The all-volunteer organization participates in sports all year long, including bocce, bowling, golf, soccer, volleyball, basketball, swimming, and track and field.

The Saathoff family
Douglas County Special Olympics athletes, coaches and other volunteers interact so easily that it makes the 80-member crew that traveled to the state basketball and cheerleading tournament in Hays last week seem like one large family.
