Thanks to Debbie for sharing her photos on Life of an El Paso Woman. Her son, Brandon has taken part in the Special Olympics since he was five years old. Brandon earned a silver medal/second place in 100 yard walk and the softball throw. The games will continue next Saturday at Burges. Athletes will take part in a golf tournament. Congratulations to all of the athletes and their loved ones. Their months of training definitely paid off.

Good job Brandon!
