MILWAUKEE — Special Olympics Wisconsin put on track and field events this month across the state. They're the largest group events the nonprofit hosted since the COVID shut down a year ago.

Special Olympics serves more than 9,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities in Wisconsin. Two new fundraisers are happening this June. The Sun Run and Solar Plunge events feature a 5K run/walk followed by the opportunity to plunge in a cool tank of water.

The Milwaukee area event takes place at Wisconsin State Fair Park at the Milwaukee Mile, with participants taking a lap around the track.
