There is a campaign underway to strike out the 'R' word.

Wednesday, students at Leestown Middle School in Lexington learned about the effect the word "Retard" or "Retarded" can have on people who have special needs.

Kentucky Special Olympics athletes talked to the students about how they feel when they hear those hurtful words.

The athletes also competed with the students in fun relay events in the gymnasium.
