Area 16 Special Olympics
The Rutherford chapter of the Special Olympics was founded in 1968 and has been providing a valuable and exciting event that is loved and respected by everyone who participates or watches. The Special Olympics are, in fact, very special to the kids and adults with intellectual disabilities who they serve. As mentioned, most of us know about the nationwide annual event. But do you realize the Special Olympics offers sports training and athletic competition 365 days a year? This gives participants ongoing opportunities to improve physical fitness, develop courage and have fun, all of this among their families, other participants and the community. Please consider being part of it this year. It can be a life-changing experience not just for the participants but you, too.
It’s the easiest good thing you’ll ever do.
