Lions and Special Olympics – Time To Continue the Partnership

As you will all, I sure, remember the Lions involvement at the Special Olympics Great Britain Summer Games has been one of the highlights of our centenary celebrations. But did you know that 2018 is the 50th anniversary of the Special Olympics movement and the 40th anniversary of Special Olympics in Great Britain?
Now is the time for Lions to further the relationship between these two fantastic organisations. We don’t have to wait until the next major games. SO athletes train every week and compete regularly at local and region events. With so many athletes and different sports there is sure to be group near you. Why not create a local partnership? It is so rewarding. Ask any Lion who was in Sheffield last year.
Below is a link to a great press article about Tim Shiver, Special Olympics Chairman, and the worldwide movement.
If you want to know more about Special Olympics, or help finding a local club/athlete please do not hesitate to contact me.
