Special Olympics event cancelled due to rain

Posted by wlpo on May 2, 2013

          A rainy forecast has forced the Spring Games of the Special Olympics to be called off.  The event planned for Saturday at Hall High School would have attracted 275 athletes and even more coaches and volunteers.

          Cheryl DePaepe with Special Olympics says they wanted to make sure their athletes would be safe.  The games will not be rescheduled, instead a lottery drawing will be held to pick who advances to the state competition.
