At the GOC we encourage people to try new things. Accomplishing something you didn’t know you can do brings confidence and helps you feel like you belong. The GOC is participating in the Special Olympics where our teams placed first place in bowling over the weekend. As part of the event, Members and staff traveled to Ocala to take part. Along with the competition and event, the Special Olympics provides access to medical care. Members participated in Healthy Athletes Podiatry. They sent us home with paperwork to provide to doctors with any issues we had as well as personal instructions on how to take care of our feet and correctly sized medical-grade slides. What a great weekend and what a great service. It is all part of being part of a community and working to make peoples’ lives better.
