Special Olympics Spring Games Held Today

The St Mary’s County Special Olympics held their 45th annual Spring Games at Leonardtown High School Today. Over 250 Athletes competed in track and field, bocce, the long jump and many other competitions. Many Volunteers were there to assist including over 250 Leonardtown High School Students who escorted the athletes around the football field to their competitions. Also the Patuxent River Naval Air Station was on site and was recognized for their dedication and hard work and for volunteering today. The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office was also at the school to present the awards and medals to the athletes which is always exciting to see.

Special Olympics would like to thank everybody that came out for this special event that continues to go on every year, also thank all the volunteers. If it wasn’t for them, they couldn’t do Special Olympics. All the Leonardtown High School Students that assisted today was a pleasure to have. Also a BIG Thank You to Leonardtown High Schools Sports Athletic Director Mr Raley for all the setup and getting this all together for the last couple of days.

Next is the Summer Games which will be held in Towson, MD. These Athletes could always use a donation. If you would like to Donate to the St. Mary’s County Special Olympics, please send a Donation to:
