The 2011 Special Olympics World Summer Games will be held in Athens, Greece. Approximately 7,000 athletes from nearly 170 countries will be in Greece. Team USA will consist of about 300 athletes from all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Kansas will have three athlete delegates will compete in aquatics, powerlifting and track and field. The average cost to send a delegate to World Games is $5,000. Donations will help cover expenses for food, travel, housing, uniforms, training, equipment and other costs pertaining to the World Games. This opportunity is expected to be a life-changing experience for our athletes and coaches. Please help us make this dream a reality.
