Join CCF at the 2018 Special Olympics Summer Games

April 21, 2018

On June 9-10, Associate volunteers from Carrington will cheer on more than 1100 Special Olympics athletes from across Southern California. We hope you’ll join the excitement as these athletes compete for gold, silver, and bronze medals and ribbons during the 2018 Special Olympics Summer Games at California State University, Long Beach.

More than 10,000 individuals are expected at the Games (sponsored in part by Carrington Charitable Foundation), which feature four summer sports: track & field, basketball, bocce, and swimming. Special Olympics, founded in 1968 by Eunice Kennedy Shriver, is the world's largest sports organization for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, providing year-round training and competitions to more than 4.4 million athletes in 170 countries.

“Seeing the Special Olympics athletes perform inspires hope, confidence, and courage,” says Shelly Lawrence, Director of Community Relations for CCF. “Special Olympics is one of many great causes Carrington Charitable Foundation is very proud to have sponsored for several years now. It is an event that many of our Associates feel passionate about and love to volunteer for.”
