Eleven counties competed in the area qualifier on Saturday May 12th at Sylvania Southview High School. Over 400 athletes competed in track and field, volleyball, and bocce ball.  Unfortunately cycling had to be canceled due to the weather conditions. Even though it was a dreary, rainy day, our athletes stuck it out and were able to get through all the events. Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers we had this year and everyone who attended.

Golf Scramble a big success!

Lucas County Special Olympics held a golf scramble on Saturday May 19th to raise money to send 3 athletes to National games. We had 29 teams attend we had many familiar faces there participating. Thank you to everyone that attended and we plan on doing it again next year!!

 

Donation will help athletes attend national games

Brian Mignin and Chris Cash accept a check for $1,000 donated by staff at Root, Inc. in Sylvania. The money will help defray costs for the athletes to attend the National Games in Seattle this summer. A heartfelt thanks goes to the staff at Root.
