CPS and Special Olympics Virginia launched a pilot Unified basketball league in January with four of our county’s 12 middle schools. Special Olympics Unified Sports joins people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team as a way to break down barriers and build meaningful relationships among young people. The first game of the season featured the Tuckahoe Patriots versus the Fairfield Falcons. The game ended in a tie, but everybody was a winner on this day.
Inspired by beloved TMS band instructor, Kirk Jackson, a group of Patriot jazz musicians, Charlie Mackay, Wyatt Pearsall, Andrew Escobar, Kieran Berry and Ben Coker recently started their own sideline gig. Pictured above are the jazzy boys performing last week at Boyer’s Ice Cream & Coffee on Grove Ave.
Watch soon for news on Mr. Jackson.
