A Franklin County Schools' sponsored Unified Champion Schools basketball game was held Friday, December 20th at Long Mill Elementary School.
During the event, athletes from LMES and Franklinton Elementary School had the opportunity to play, shoot the ball and dance!
Special Olympics athletes paired with Unified Partners from each school to compete in a 5x5 basketball game. Unified Champion Schools is a program through Special Olympics that unifies athletes and their peers through sports.
Franklin County Schools has been a leader in the "Inclusion Revolution" for many years and has expanded the program to the district's elementary schools.
The event was sponsored by Covenant Hope Baptist Church, Moss Foods and Union Bank.
