Pleasanton RADD Roadrunners take golds

 

The Pleasanton RADD (Recreational Activities for the Developmentally Disabled) Roadrunners track and field team had a strong showing at the Special Olympics Northern California competition at Amador Valley High earlier this month.

All members of the Roadrunners team earned at least one gold in their events and qualified for a spot to compete at the Summer Games in Davis this June, according to coach Kay King. The competition at Amador featured close to 600 athletes from across Northern California.

Also, RADD team member Larry Phillips, a 70-year-old who is retiring from Special Olympics this year, led the Pledge of Allegiance during the opening ceremonies.
