Next one person from each school participated in the traditional passing of the torch. The students ran a section of the tack then passed the torch to the next school.

Beauregard Parish School Board Superintendent Cooley gave a short speech thanking everyone for coming to participate.

DeRidder's mayor Misty Clanton also spoke and showed off her mismatched socks in honor of "Rock your socks for world down syndrome day." From there the games began.

There were plenty of events for the student-athletes to participate in as well as fun games to play while they waited for their event.

The stands were full of cheering students and parents, making for one very successful and fun-filled event.
