For The Kids 2011

The FTK is an annual mini-Olympics made especially for children with special needs including the Deaf. Back in 1986, it began as a small project organized by the DLSU-Center for Social Concern and Action (COSCA) in partnership with the University’s Physical Education Department. They pulled off the first event with 50 participating kids from different centers and SPED schools.

Now in its 21st year, FTK is a source of inspiration not only for the Kids but for the Kuyas and Ates as well.
