One of the most gratifying and fulfilling efforts that CKEC participates in is Special Olympics. If you have never served as a “hugger” at the finish line, then you can’t begin to imagine the overwhelming joy of helping a young person with physical disabilities. Cameras can not adequately capture the sheer determination on the faces of those challenged by life’s unfairness as they cross the finish line. Whether in first place or last, it is a look that can only be captured in the heart. Our very own Keith DeVaughan of the Member Services Dept. travels to Stillwater, OK every year to not only encourage his own son but to share the accomplishments of other participants. Way to go Keith!
