to make next year's Games the
best ever.
"There's also a great sense of
pride because they're doing some-
thing for their fellow Jews."
Mr. Pollack echoed Mr. App-
plebaum's thoughts.
"Too many Jews don't realize
these developmentally-chal-
lenged Jews live in the area be-
cause we don't see them very
often," said Mr. Pollack, who is
the vice president of the Hall of
Fame. "It's important for us, who
are blessed with good health, to
do what we can for them.
"Once you work at the Games,
you're hooked. You fall in love
with the athletes because of their
enthusiasm and competitive na-
ture and you admire their
courage."
Former Hall of Fame secretary
Jim Grossman said, "It's very dif-
ficult to feel sorry for people who
don't feel sorry about themselves.
The athletes want you to ignore
their handicap."
According to JCC assistant ex-
ecutive director Bruce
Landgarten, "No one leaves the
Games without so many things
running through their mind. It's
an experience everyone should
have."
Nearly all the members of the
Hall of Fame board of governors
either volunteered at the Games
or helped in other ways.
Among the celebrities in at-

tendance were WDFN all-sports
radio personalities Rob Parker
and Mike Stone, ex-Detroit Pis-
ton Vinnie Johnson, and John
Ahlers, voice of the Detroit Neon
indoor soccer team and Detroit
Vipers hockey club.
"Vinnie was a real hit. The ath-
letes were really enamored to him
and he seemed moved by their re-
action to him," Mr. Landgarten
said.

"Once you work
at the Games,
you're hooked."

Nate Pollack

The athletes participated in
about 20 track and field and
swimming events. Organizers
put the participants in events ac-
cording to their abilities.
"Everything went without a
glitch," said Mr. Landgarten.
"Our Sports and Fitness Depart-
ment did a great job organizing
the competition and when the
weather forced us to move every-
thing inside, including the open-
ing ceremonies, there were no
problems."
Mr. Pollock said a similar
event for athletes ages 18 and un-
der is planned for the spring. ❑
