Every year, The Matthew Foundation puts on Super Fest wherever the Super Bowl is being held. Since the game was in Houston this year, so was Super Fest. It’s a football and cheerleading clinic for kids and adults with disabilities. While the Foundation’s focus is mostly Down Syndrome, the event was open to people with any sort of disability, and without. We signed Noah up for football and Maya for cheerleading. The weather wasn’t awesome, though – chilly and damp – so we didn’t stay until the end.
There were NFL alumni in attendance, though I have no clue who, as well as cheerleaders from the Atlanta Falcons, the Houston Texans, and the University of Houston. Freddie Falcon and the Dynamo mascot were on hand, too. It was a really neat thing for the kids to experience.
