Kids’ health startup Tiny Docs recently produced this short animated video celebrating Special Olympics athletes who are working hard to be the best they can be. Focusing on physical fitness and healthy lifestyles, “Live from Special Olympics” was inspired and co-written by Washington Township athlete Nicholas Herran.
Special Olympics stands in solidarity with the African American community, and other marginalized communities, in the U.S. and around the world in opposing systemic oppression, exclusion, and injustice.
Engaging athletes, volunteers, and supporters across the state who are unable to gather for in-person competition or events due to ongoing health and safety concerns, Special Olympics Indiana’s 2020 Summer Games Sports & Fitness Challenge will be held virtually from June 12 to July 25.
In its sixth year, the Subaru Color 5K is going virtual! For everyone’s health and safety during this unprecedented time, the new run/walk format will enable participants to enjoy the route of their choosing. Additionally, for the first time in the history of the event, the first 600 finishers will receive a finisher medal.
Kicking off our 2020 Virtual Summer Games, the Flame of Hope Torch Run is a unique fundraising event bringing together law enforcement officers and agencies from across the state to raise money and awareness for Special Olympics athletes while practicing social distancing in their own communities.
