2013 Special Olympics BC Summer Games

Thank you!

The 2013 Special Olympics BC Summer Games from July 11 to 13 were a remarkable demonstration of true sportsmanship, dedication, and joy by more than 1,100 B.C. and Yukon athletes competing in 11 sports.

Thank you to the athletes who inspired us all - to the remarkable coaches who supported them every step of the way - and to the volunteers, sponsors, and supporters who made it all possible! Thank you Langley!
