Congratulations to the more than 1,300 athletes who participated in the 2017 State Summer Games last week! You all have so much to be proud of and the Special Olympics Wisconsin community is very proud of you!
This year’s Games were a triumph, from the Final Leg runs that took place all over the state, to the amazing Opening Ceremony hosted by soccer star Kate Markgraf, to the outstanding competition that took place all over UW-Stevens Point over the course of two beautiful days.
The success of this year’s Games is due to the hard work of many people. Huge thanks are in order to the countless coaches, volunteers, vendors, SOWI staff and, of course, athletes and their families who helped make this a Summer Games to truly remember.
And thank you to the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Wisconsin for your ongoing support of our athletes and our mission. We couldn’t do what we do without you!
Thank you to Delta Dental of Wisconsin and Lions Club International for partnering with us for another successful Healthy Athletes. We’re also grateful to Kwik Trip, the WIAC and Great Lakes Coca-Cola for sponsoring the Summer Games and helping to make the event such a hit.
