PHS Senior CeCe Robinson Hosts 2nd Special Olympics Clinic at PHS

November 29, 2018
By

CeCe Special OlympicsCelia “CeCe” Robinson, a senior at Plymouth High School, and a member of the IHSAA Student Advisory Committee will once again host a Special Olympics Clinic at Plymouth High School to raise awareness for Special Olympics Indiana. Last year she organized a basketball clinic and this year she is hosting a soccer clinic. The clinic will take place today, Nov. 30 from 12:35-3:15 p.m. in the varsity gym at Plymouth High School.

 

CeCe said, “Along with five different soccer stations, which are focused on specific skills and fundamentals, we have a wide variety of games planned. Each Special Olympian who attends will have two student-athlete partners, and we will be doing relay races, red light & green light, a penalty kick challenge, an ice cream bar, a scrimmage, and an award ceremony at the end. The day is packed full of fun activities, so I am very excited.”

 

The IHSAA Student Advisory Committee is made up of 18 high school athletes from across Indiana who represent more than 160,000 student-athletes in the Hoosier state. The committee’s goal is to raise money and awareness for Special Olympics Indiana. CeCe is trying to raise awareness about Special Olympics Indiana here in Plymouth by starting inside the Plymouth Community School Corporation.

 

Special Olympics Indiana provides year-round training and competition in more than 20 sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

 

So far ten Special Olympians are registered to attend tomorrow’s clinic. Community members are welcome to attend as well; however, this event is during school hours, so all guests must enter through the school’s front doors and have their driver’s license with them. There is no set fee to attend the clinic, but donations are welcome.

 

To raise money again this year, CeCe was granted permission to hold a Special Olympics fundraiser for PCSC faculty at several of our schools. Staff members are allowed to wear jeans to work during the entire week (Nov. 26-30) in trade for a set donation to Indiana Special Olympics.

 

Last year CeCe’s fundraising efforts earned Plymouth High School the Champions Together Unified School Banner for the very first time. The banner is on display in the PHS gym where the clinic will be held and is a symbol of inclusion and unity. This year she is hoping to earn PHS the banner for a second year. “I am hoping to raise $2,000 this year and if I meet my goal, PHS will receive the Champions Together Unified School Banner for the second time in school history. There are only a few dozen schools that have achieved the requirements to get the banner for two years, so this would be a tremendous honor for PHS,” said CeCe.

 

If you are a community member and you would like to help CeCe reach her fundraising goal, please contact her directly via email at crobinson85@plymouth.k12.in.us. Donations can be made during school hours in the front office at Plymouth High School.
