Special Olympics Ohio - 2014 State Summer Games

Portage DD Banner
The Portage DD Special Olympics team headed to Ohio State University for this year’s State Summer Games, June 27 - June 29. The delegation consisted of 30 athletes, 15 coaches, and several chaperones. Everyone came armed with luggage, uniforms, and box fans to embrace the competition and the hot dorm rooms. The athletes competed and excelled in Bocce, Bowling, Powerlifting, Track and Field and Volleyball. In between events, the athletes enjoyed visiting Tent Town because it was full of souvenirs, games, prizes, music, and ice cold snow cones. Saturday evening was spent watching movies, playing cards, and eating pizza!
