Every Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m., dedicated teenage volunteers from Cranford gather together with their “buddies” to participate in the Young Athlete Program, which is designed for children with special needs between the ages of three and seven years old. The goal of the class is to help develop the skills needed to eventually compete in the Special Olympics, which begins at age eight.
The program was initiated last year under the directorship of Sally Curci, a local resident and teacher, who has two children with special needs.
