What is Special Olympics?

Special Olympics organizes several events throughout the year – including a soccer tournament, two basketball tournaments in Peterson Recreation Center, and an on-campus swim meet.  Each year hundreds of PC student volunteers help coordinate these athletic events with Special Olympics of Rhode Island.

Why did you decide to get involved?

Because I find this to be the most rewarding and fulfilling experience not only for myself, but for the athletes and volunteers, too!

What are you looking forward to most about being involved with Special Olympics this year?

Seeing how many volunteers we will have and deciding on the spring sport!

Upcoming;  The Unified Basketball Tournament Saturday December 6th 8:00 am – 3:00 pm

Meetings:  Tuesdays at 7:00 pm in the Chapel Basement.  All are welcome!
