A group of students took a break from the usual classroom environment.
Students with disabilities brought a friend from their campus to the Brownsville Independent School District’s Buddy Fun Meet, a fun filled event where students participated in bowling, basketball, beanie bag tosses and more. 
“The Buddy Fun Meet is an event that we have annually, this is the 19th Annual Buddy Fun Meet and it’s to bring the children and the students from different elementary [schools] so they can be in the least restricted environment where they celebrate their abilities,” said David Lucio Special Olympics Coordinator. 
Besides having fun with skilled activities, the students were able to learn and discuss the similarities they have.
The purpose of the Buddy Fun Meet is for students to form lifelong friendships with each other!
