CSULA hosts a “Good Luck” rally for the German Team

“The World Games also show us what we have in common as people in the world, no matter what country we call home.”

The German Special Olympics Team enjoyed a rally at California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA) on Friday, July 24. All were welcome to watch as the German team paraded in the gymnasium through a tunnel of cheerleaders while a band performed.

As the rally went on, Mark Keppel High School and San Gabriel High School’s dance teams, cheerleaders, and band performed their routines. Jeff Maloney, co-chairperson of the Alhambra Host Town Committee said, “We wanted to show them sort of an old-fashioned American pep-rally.”

CSULA also projected a slideshow of pictures and videos from the past week, and all the activities and training the German athletes went through.
