2020 Special Olympics Basketball Showcase

The 2020 Special Olympics Basketball Showcase will begin at 2:00pm in Plachy Gym, located next to Rex Field at Adams State University, Sunday afternoon, February 23. Aside from spreading awareness for the Special Olympics, this event will include a fundraiser where all donations will go to the local program in Alamosa towards supplies, equipment, and travel expenses needed throughout the year. The event will feature a thrilling modified basketball game played by the SLV Dust Devils. The game will consist of 8 minute running clock quarters and each team on the court will be composed of three Special Olympians and two non-Special Olympians. Admission will be free for this event, although donations are greatly appreciated! Come show your support by bringing friends, family, and teammates to our 2020 Special Olympics Basketball Showcase for a unique and unforgettable experience.
The Special Olympics is a program that is held year-round for individuals with intellectual disabilities. This program consists of sports training for specific sports such as basketball or track that will lead to a modified version of competition. Special Olympics was founded to give children or adults with an intellectual disability the opportunity to participate in competitive physical activity in a fun and safe way. If you have any questions about the 2020 Showcase or the SLV Special Olympics program please contact Peggy Johnson at 719-587-7408 or email at pvjohnson@adams.edu.

No one’s perfect …

One of Stephen King’s rules for writers is “don’t obsess over perfect grammar.” He says “the object… isn’t grammatical correctness but to make the reader welcome and then tell a story.” At the Writing Studio, we can check grammar, but we’d rather help you make the reader welcome and tell a story. Stop in and say hi.
