身边公益，助人助己Engaging in doing public service to help others
The one-month-long “Special Olympics Unified Run” was successfully concluded on Nov. 23th, 2019. Our united team ended up with an excellent 2nd place in the final, which inspired us a lot. Quickly as one month has passed by, many touching moments are still vivid in our mind.
The instant we walked into the Qingpu Special Needs Education School, we were greeted with overwhelming enthusiasm. Without any shyness due to their first meeting,young boys of their school exchanged thoughts,shared experiences and hobbies, and discussed fashion with our students as if they had been old acquaintances. Almost every time those kids met to have training together, they greeted and hugged each other and joined their hands. We were deeply impressed by such true intimacy and sincerity between them.
We aim to engage in doing public service through this Unified Run by helping special kids better join in the community they belong to. In turn, what we are doing should be viewed as a process of self-refinement and self-recognition.To list just a few touching details of this month-long activity:Our students bent over to help those young boys fasten protective pads;our kids patiently repeated the movement of running so as to help those young kids adjust to the paces; our kids sacrificed their break and even study hours for the Unified Run without voicing a complaint; our kids also complied with the arrangements and rules of the race,and tried their best to achieve the goal of the Unified Run.To our delight, through this Unified Run, our kids have formed some fine characters, such as unrequited responsibility and altruistic care. We believe that such an unforgettable experience will help them grow up by making them become more motivated, more confident and more reliable. Perhaps the greatest charm of doing public services lies in improving ourselves as well as helping others.
We are actively engaging in doing public services by doing what we are willing to do and what we think is meaningful. We are helping not only kids of the Special Needs School but also ourselves.
