The time spent at St Mark’s Elementary School was great! It was nice to see all the kids and especially Owen Gray. The event highlighted the student’s heroes – and each student dressed like their idol. I was honored that Owen chose me as his hero – wow, that was an honor!
Owen had made a sled hockey sled out of curtain wires and cardboard. Each student was made-up like a wax figure of their idol. You would go up to each kid and they had a short speech about who they were. It was really cool to see Owen playing me! I had a lot of fun seeing the other kids and getting to meet Owen and see his hard work.
