Special Olympics Athletes Golf at Bacon Park

Some children got a chance to show off their sports skills today as the Special Olympics kicked off throughout Savannah. Bacon Park played host to a golfing exhibition. Youngsters took a few shots at hitting long drives and getting closest to the hole.

Students from Calvary Day School volunteered their time to help make the day better. They say the best part of the day wasn't the athletic feats, but the smiles on participants' faces.

"It's so rewarding to see how you can help people less fortunate than us," said volunteer Hannah Hogan. "I know all of us have so much, so it's great to give back any way you can."

While some kids played better than others, everyone walked away a winner from today's event.
