Awesome for the young lady.

My company used to be the main sponsor of what we called annual Special Olympics for the athletes with special needs. I would volunteer every year for the 3 day event and it was the happiest days of my life helping the athletes. Last day featured a dance in the evening and a lot of happy faces.
