It is my last year as a member of Special Olympics at UGA, and I want to make it my best one yet! This organization has been my favorite part of my college experience, and I am so lucky to be serving as one of the the Co-Presidents this year.
Special Olympics at UGA is a nonprofit that serves individuals in the Athens-Clarke County community through direct hands-on service as well as fundraising. On a weekly basis we have adaptive PE classes at the ACC schools and gymnastics and basketball practices to prepare the athletes for the winter games. A couple of our big events each year include prom, baseball, and an Easter egg hunt. We also do monthly social groups with adults who have graduated out of the school system, and we put on events such as movie nights and cookouts. All fundraising profits go directly towards Athens-Clarke County to help pay for equipment, transportation, and registration so we can send our athletes to the State Games. Thank you so much for your support!
