Special Winter Olympics Colorado is back on!
This is really a special event for people who would otherwise have very little chance of participating in something else of such significance.
Gotta hand it to the Colorado Donor who made this dream come back alive for some many people.
Press Release from Special Olympics Colorado:
“We are delighted to announce that the Special Olympics Colorado 2010 State Winter Games have been reinstated,” says Mindy Watrous, President & CEO of SOCO. “These generous Colo- radoans, who wish to remain anonymous, have made our athletes’ dreams come true. We are ex- tremely grateful to them.”
