The first annual United Champion Cougar Relays was held on Wednesday April 17 at Bryan Adams High School.  The event was organized and spearheaded by Bryan Adams Head Football Coach Sean Lorance.  Coach Lorance said he began in November of 2018 and was amazed at how many groups were willing to dive in and help.  Unified Champion Schools is the concept of partnering special needs kids with general education students.  In this case Cougar female and male athletes competed alongside our Cougar Special Olympians in various running and field events.  The event was a huge success due to the tireless efforts of many organizations and community members.  Unified Champion School partner with ESPN to drive this concept across our nation.  They donated 75 new uniforms for our Special Olympians and the award medals at our event.  Special Olympics of Texas donated the banners on display, Dallas ISD Special Education and Adaptive PE provided equipment and volunteer's.  Edmentum a national educational software company proved volunteers and Lakepoint Church provided breadfast and lunch for all participants.

A heartfelt thanks of these groups and the many community members who gave of their time to help the event run smoothly.

Coach Lorance said the goal is to grow the Unified Champion Cougar Relays each year into a must see calendar event.  If you would like more information or opportunities to help in any way, email Cougar Head Football coach Sean Lorance at rlorance@dallasisd.org
