The Woodlands Kiwanis
Special Olympics Competition

Come out to Oak Ridge High School and help support the atheletes competing in track and field sports in the Special Olympics. These competitions encourage athletes of all abilities and ages to compete at their optimum level. Through the track-and-field-based athletics training program, participants can develop total fitness to compete in any sport. As with all Special Olympics sports, athletics offers athletes the opportunity to learn through skill development and competitive settings, and to be involved in large social settings.

When people think of Special Olympics, many think of the World Games held every two years, alternating between Summer and Winter Games. But the World Games are just a small part of the thousands of events held throughout the year, around the world. Since 1968, the athletes of Special Olympics have shown that sports training and competition benefits people with intellectual disabilities physically, mentally, socially and spiritually. Families are strengthened and the community at large, through participation and observation, is united as a place of acceptance and dignity.

The 28th annual Woodlands Kiwanis athletics (track and field) competition begins at 9:00 AM. If you would like to volunteer, offer any type of sponsorship, or simply find out more about the Special Olympics, please contact the Special Olympics Texas - Heart of East Texas area office at 936 756-6906 or Royce Brooks via email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
