Special Olympics, Sunday May 1
Posted by Nancy Shepherdson
On Sunday, May 1, the Rotary Club of Lake Zurich will be sponsoring the Tennis Ball/Softball Throw for the Special Olympics Area 13 Spring Games at Lake Zurich High School. The Lake Zurich Rotary Club will be supplying all the volunteers to run that event.
So, if you haven't already signed up, you are welcome to join the club at 8:30 a.m. at the field east of the stadium. Please contact email@example.com to volunteer. Volunteers will guide the athletes to their competition areas, measure throws and retrieve balls. Youth ages 14 and above, as well as adults, may volunteer.
Athletes compete in divisions by gender and ability levels. To compete in the Special Olympics Illinois Area Spring Games, athletes must train for eight weeks. Athletes who win a gold medal at these Area games qualify to compete in the Special Olympics Illinois State Summer Games to be held June 12-14.
