Partners sought for Unified Softball League

Lucas County Special Olympics has teamed up with the City of Toledo to offer a unified softball league this summer!!  We are on the hunt for unified partners. Partners are individuals without disabilities who join the Special Olympics athletes on the field.

You do not have to be a softball star to play, but do recommend you know the game and have played  at least a little at some point.  I have attached the link that will have all the information and how to register if you are interested.  Our goal is to have at least 4 teams that will play weekly games against each other.  This is a great way to get to know some of our athletes and have some fun at the same time!  Click on this link for more information and to register.
