Special Olympics NC

North Carolina District West is involved in the Special Olympics North Carolina. Many of our clubs contribute money to their local Special Olympics programs, SONC Fall and Summer Games, and the Special Olympics World Games.

Over and above the money, many clubs run the local Special Olympics Games for their counties and communities. The Fall Games are staffed by a large group of Civitan volunteers who are ultimately in charge of the Awards Program at these Fall Games. The Fall Games have been held in High Point for the past seven years and are scheduled to be in that city again for 2013.

The Summer Games have found their home to the Raleigh area and continue to attract many Civitan volunteers.

Several years ago North Carolina had the honor to host the Special Olympics World Games. The World games found communities across North Carolina hosting the athletes and the venues.

The 3rd Special Olympics USA National Games will be in Princeton NJ in 2014.  The 14th Special Olympics World Summer Games will be in Los Angeles CA in 2015.
