Special Olympics committee to host information meeting

Special Olympics BC – Revelstoke information session for participants, friends and family will take place Thursday, Nov. 13

Knowing the types of activities potential participants are interested in is a priority for the newly formed Special Olympics BC – Revelstoke executive committee.

To ensure the committee is working to offer sports and activities of interest, an information evening is being held in order for potential participants, their friends, family members and support workers to learn about the many benefits of participating in Special Olympics activities. For example:

• Did you know being a Special Olympics BC athlete does not mean participating in competitive sports (unless you want to)?

• Did you know Special Olympics BC offers programs that focus on participation and healthy activities? These non-competitive programs include Active Start and Fundamentals for children, and ClubFit for teens and adults.

• Did you know being a Special Olympics BC participant can offer you the opportunity to meet new people, try new activities and have fun.

• Did you know that the cost to participate Special Olympics BC – Revelstoke activities is only a one-time registration fee of $10?

The Special Olympics BC – Revelstoke information session for participants, friends and family will take place Thursday, Nov. 13 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Revelstoke Community Centre. For further information, please contact Craig Brown at 250-837-2920.
