The Special Olympics World Games will be held in Los Angeles this year, July 21st through 24th. The City of La Habra applied to act as a Host Town for participating athletes and was approved to host delegations from Lithuania, Myanmar and Norway. The Host Town program is a special three-day program that takes place prior to the Opening Ceremony and gives the athletic delegations from around the world a welcoming experience and an opportunity to take part in a cultural exchange of activities. We know that the bond created between athletes and our community members will be life changing, and it will promote acceptance and inclusion of intellectual disabilities throughout our community. Volunteer and sponsorship opportunities are still available. For more information, please contact Karlee Marshall at 562-383-4211.
