The "We Not Me" basketball event at Pleasant Valley High School was made to help people feel special.

A group of students with special needs played against each other and varsity basketball players.

One student, senior Jaret Flint, works with the special-ed program on campus and wanted to bring 'We Not Me' to his school.

"It sometimes brings me to tears just thinking about what they don't have and what we do have. Now they're kind of living the dream and they'll remember this moment for the rest of their lives. That was our goal," said Flint.

Friday's event felt like a real game. The stands were packed and cheerleaders were showing their support.

Flint says this is much more than a basketball game, it's a way the entire school can come together as one.

"They're having a blast and everyone has a smile on their face and that's all that matters," said Flint.
