Special Olympics Unified Soccer Team

Enumclaw Special Olympics Unified Soccer TeamEnumclaw S.O. Unified Soccer TeamThis is the Enumclaw Special Olympics Unified Soccer team portrait for 2017

What a gift of God to have had the opportunity to photograph & enjoy the company of the Unified Soccer Team.

I love seeing them enjoy the practice time & hopefully their portrait time too. :) I've been very excited for the opportunity to help & serve the Special Olympics since we 1st photographed one of their teams. But, once I found out what "Unified" meant in the description I was even more excited (see this website for more info http://www.specialolympics.org/unified-sports.aspx)

"Young people with disabilities do not often get a chance to play on their school sports teams. More and more U.S. states are adopting the Unified Sports approach that Special Olympics pioneered."

Unified Special Olympics Teams are a beautiful mix of individuals playing & competing in sports for the fun & enjoyment of what sports are.

It's awesome!!!

Completely unaware of this program & how it worked, one of the teams asked us to photograph their portraits. The kids had such infectious smiles on their faces as they played & it was a beautiful thing to watch as kids with disabilities could play alongside others kids.

They competed as equals & played fun exciting games with laughter & joy filling the area. It was inspiring to see these kids without limiting disabilities take time out of their days to engage, play along side & have fun with the Special Olympics Team. It was a proud moment & they may not even know the impact they're having. :) But we do!!! Timothy Dehnert Photography is proud to support & encourage The Enumclaw Special Olympics organization. If you would like to add your support & encouragement please join the team by supporting financially or by playing on one of the Unified teams. You'll love it. :)
