Both head coaches, Chris DeLisio (OFHS) and Jim Brabenec (Midview) supported the event by having their teams warm up in the Celebrating Differences T-shirts and allowing students from Helping Hands to assist them warm up.  Coach DeLisio made a surprise visit with his team during the social!  Both Olmsted Falls and Midview cheer squads also participated in the event.  Midview brought its Sparkles team made up of cheerleaders and Best Buddies members and Olmsted Falls cheerleaders had Helping Hands members cheer with them.
