2015 Special Olympics World Games

As you know, the Special Olympics World Games are coming to Los Angeles County. The Opening Ceremonies are set for Saturday, July 25 at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum. More than 7,000 athletes from 177 countries will be arriving in town this week, making the World Games the largest event we’ve hosted since the 1984 Olympics.

Below, you’ll find everything you need to know about the Special Olympics World Games.¬†All of the athletic competitions are free to attend, so I hope you’ll find some time to come out to an event and support the athletes. Whether it’s beach volleyball or roller skating, I promise you will be inspired by every single athlete who is competing. Stay tuned to Facebook and Twitter for updates from the events.

Have a great week and I will see you at the World Games!
