SOTX athletes and parents sign the R-word poster at the Winter Games Victory Dance on February 2

Have you taken the pledge against the R-word? If you have, thank you; if not, what are you waiting for? Friends, family members and supporters of Special Olympics athletes across the nation are taking a stand against the hurtful words, "retard" and "retarded", by spreading the word to end the word. Meet in the Middle students are also doing their part to get rid of the R-word by hosting R-word Awareness Day events on campus and inviting members of the community to take the pledge. Many are also displaying an R-word poster in their classrooms and collecting signatures in honor of R-word Awareness Day. 

Pledge against using the R-word today.
