A record 2,745 competitors from across the state are expected to take part in Special Olympics Indiana’s 2018 Summer Games, to be held June 8-10 on and around the campuses of Indiana State University and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. The organization’s largest annual event, the Indiana Summer Games features state-level competition in eight Olympic-type sports, including bocce, bowling, cycling, horseshoes, powerlifting, swimming, track & field, and volleyball.
Through Special Olympics’ Unified Champion Schools program, high school students in Indiana and across the country are embracing Unified Sports® and, together, are making social inclusion a priority in their lives.
The spark that became today’s Special Olympics movement ignited at the first 1968 International Summer Games in Chicago. Five decades later, we are returning to where it all began to take part in a series of commemorative events hosted by Special Olympics International, July 17-21.
