Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine

On November 7th, 2010, 7 members of the PCOM SAOASM club volunteered at the annual Pennsylvania Special Olympics Fall Festival at Villanova University. The volunteers included Matt Sullivan, Bryan Hess, Joe Quintiliani, Shannon Lockwood, Vanessa Pabon, Mike Currie, Petagaye English. It was a great time spent helping out and cheering on the athletes as they participated in a number of different sports. Volunteers helped out on the soccer fields refereeing games and cheering on the athletes. The club was also generous enough to sponsor two special Olympic athletes with a donation of $228 through the Special Olympics “Adopt an Athlete program.” Proceeds from the Elton Cosby 3v3 basketball tournament that will be held early next year at PCOM will go towards this donation as well as another charity. Upcoming club events include volunteer opportunity at the Philadelphia Marathon medical tent, OMM in Sports speaker and lab on musculoskeletal diagnostic skills. Below is the logo of the volunteer T-shirts that were worn during the duration of the day at Special Olympics.
