V is for Victory

Each year eighth-grade day students participate in an apostolic experience at the Michigan Victory Games at the end of the school year.

Michigan Victory Games is a tournament hosted by Michigan State University. The tournament seeks to give athletes with physical disabilities a chance: a chance to compete, to make friends, and to feel the support of a team. To experience the thrill of victory and the possibility of defeat. To gain the kind of values, morals, and skills that only sports can provide. Their motto is “sports by ability, not disability.”

The eighth-grade students traveled to Lansing and enjoyed a day of generous self-giving by assisting the athletes with bowling at the Royal Scot bowling alley.  They helped them keep score, get set up, and encouraged them during the game.
