Colorado Rapids mascot pounds the pavement to give Class of 2020 personal graduation parties

By now, you've all seen the inspirational posts of empathy and well wishes for the graduating high school class of 2020, who have had the normal rituals that are among the hallmarks of American life updended by the COVID-19 pandemic.

RapidMan, the Colorado Rapids' trusty mascot, took those feelings a step further this weekend.

While keeping a responsible social distance, RapidMan paid a special visit to some high school-aged fans and their families around the region, bringing with him all the trappings of a mini graduation ceremony, including balloons, confetti and a gift basket.

No word on whether the club tried to find RapidMan an appropriately sized cap and gown.
