Special Olympics Area 6
The local chapter for Special Olympics is Area 6. The mission of Special Olympics here and around the world is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. This gives them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
Special Olympics offers the following sports in Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester Counties: Basketball, Bowling, Cheerleading, Cycling, Golf, Kayaking, Running/Walking, Sailing, Soccer, Softball, Swim, Tennis, and Weightlifting.
For more information to to keep up with what our athletes are up to, you can follow them on Facebook or check out their website.
Special Olympics SC Needs YOUR Help!
The Check that Publix sends after the Annual Torch Campaign is the largest contribution SOSC receives.
We need athletes, parents and FoSOSC s– (that would be Friends of Special Olympics SC) are asked to:
· Take the time stop a Publix and thank the cashiers. They are the front line of asking (no asking – no getting).
· Take an athlete into a store and “MAN” a table for a couple of hours.
(afraid of asking? So are a lot of the cashiers – and at times people are even rude to them!!)
Now – being a bit preachy… Special Olympics SC does a lot for our family members. And for the most part at no charge.
Also – I believe it is good for our athletes to reach out to people … tell them about their successes, show their medals.
Their telling the message of what SOSC is – is more powerful that any words I could share.
The community deserves to know that incredible athletes Special Olympics SC Athletes are!
