The Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office, joined Natchitoches Police, the NSU Police Department and Louisiana State Police to support Special Olympics Red River Games at Northwestern State University’s Walter Ledet Track and Field in Natchitoches. Some Natchitoches Parish School Board administrators and students were also in attendance to support and cheer on Natchitoches Parish Special Olympic athletes who competed.
The event provides an opportunity for those with intellectual disabilities to compete in various track and field competitions.
The motto of the Special Olympics, which inspires thousands of communities to support the organization, is “Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”
