Special Olympics Needs Fans Next Week

Special Olympics Needs Fans Next Week

From the VA Special Olympics:

If you’ve ever played sports, you know what it’s like to be cheered on by a crowd.  The applause, the shouts of encouragement, the adrenaline rush.  Now imagine that same swim meet, that same soccer tournament, that same football game – but without the fans. 

We believe it’s truly not as special without fans – and that goes for any sports competition, including Special Olympics.  So we need you to “Volunteer to Cheer” at this year’s Special Olympics Virginia Winter Championships, Jan. 13-14 in Northern Virginia.  Spend two hours – or all day! – showing your enthusiasm for more than 65 athletes from across Virginia who will go for the gold in speed skating.
