PGCPS' Feet Meet Benefiting Special Olympics Virginia Set for April 17

March 18, 2024
 
Hundreds of Prince George County Public Schools students and staff will lace up their shoes to participate in the district's fifth annual Feet Meet benefiting Special Olympics Virginia on Wednesday, April 17, 2024, at Prince George High School's athletic field from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The athletic field is located behind N.B. Clements Jr. High School at 7800 Laurel Spring Road in Prince George.
 
The Feet Meet is a unified track and field meet where students with and without intellectual disabilities partner to train and represent their school at the high school sports complex. This event promotes physical activity, forming new friendships, encouraging teamwork, and inspiring leadership and unity among our school community.
 
Over 500 students and staff from the district's five elementary schools, J.E.J. Moore Middle School, N.B. Clements Jr. High School, and Prince George High School, are expected to come together to take part in events, volunteer, and be part of the fun and uplifting experiences the Feet Meet produces every year.
 
Opening ceremonies for the Little Feet Meet will begin at 10:00 a.m. or once all school delegations arrive, with student events starting shortly afterward.
 
Spectators will be permitted to park in the lot behind the press box at the athletic field and cheer on the Little Feet Meet participants from the home stands.
 
Local businesses and community organizations interested in supporting the Feet Meet event can contact event organizer Peter Herring at [email protected] or (804)-733-2745.
