Summer Games Smiles

Each year the Special Olympics Pennsylvania turns Penn State into their olympic city.  I smile ear to ear when I cover the event each year.

The athletes are the nicest athletes out there. They are dedicated to their sport and always excited to tell you about their achievements and team.  They like to have a lot of fun too.  Hanging out in the olympic village with teammates is just as rewarding as competing.

Special Olympics Beaver Stadium Walk and Run

Today was the fourth annual Special Olympics Beaver Stadium walk and run. It’s a great addition to the blue and white weekend activities and raises money for an even greater cause.  This years race had a record turn out of participants, with a record breaking amount of money raised for Pennsylvania Special Olympics.  Check out this quick clip.
