Special Olympics Wisconsin is a statewide organization of the Special Olympics movement that unleashes the transformative power and joy of sports everyday around the world. Through work in sports, health, education and community building, Special Olympics has been empowering people with intellectual disabilities for more than 50 years, leading to a more welcoming and inclusive society. With the support of donors, coaches and volunteers, Special Olympics Wisconsin provides year-round sports training and more than 150 athletic events in 19 Olympic-type sports to 9,000 individuals with intellectual disabilities.
This year since the Athletes are unable to compete in person, the Special Olympics Wisconsin had to shift everything online. This gives the Athletes the experience they have been waiting for all year and helps continue growing their network of friends and support. The best part is, YOU are invited too! Special Olympics Wisconsin is inviting the community to participate in the new Virtual Run Series taking place October 3-31, 2020.
We are joined by our very own Vince Vitrano and Sara Graper from the Special Olympics to learn more about how these important games are continuing through the pandemic.
Join the online community by following them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram! For more information, visit SpecialOlympicsWisconsin.org or call (608) 222-1324.
