Special Olympics Summer Games to bring more than 1,500 athletes to the area

Community

The Special Olympics Summer Games is coming back to Richmond! Over 1,500 athletes will be flocking to RVA to compete in bowling, tennis, track & field, swimming, and softball at several venues around town Friday, June 7th and Saturday, June 8th. 

Come cheer on the athletes participating, and help raise money by participating in the “Solar Plunge”. Volunteers are still needed, and you can still register to be in the Torch Run.

The opening ceremony is at the University of Richmond, and American Idol contestant Shayy Winn will be singing.
