On Oct. 15, SCI Albion held its third annual SNU (Special Needs Unit) and RTU (Residential Treatment Unit) Olympics. This event has become a new tradition at the institution and each year, inmates eagerly await the competitions and courses. Last year, the Olympics were held inside due to inclement weather; however, this year brought forth shining sun and perfect temperatures!

The SNU and RTU inmates all met in the yard for friendly competition. Activities workers facilitated various sprints on the track, team relays, softball toss, long jump and an agility course. Inmates that generally skip the yard attended the event and actively participated. The inmates showed support for one another and came together as a team.

Throughout the afternoon, various staff members showed their support by cheering for the inmates. There were numerous comments about how some of the more reclusive inmates were excited and animated, showing a different side of themselves than what is usually seen.  

The SNU and RTU staff and inmate population would like to thank everyone who made this year's Olympics a success. There are so many aspects involved when holding an event inside an institution. From approvals, to staffing and gathering the necessary supplies, each participating unit appreciates all of the efforts made to support this yearly tradition.
