Annual Special Olympics Spring Games happening this weekend

Posted by wlpo on May 4, 2016

Before all the pageantry this summer in Rio, there’s the running of the torch and lighting of the cauldron this Saturday in Spring Valley.

You can head out to Hall High School and cheer on over 200 athletes competing in the annual Spring Games for the Special Olympics Starved Rock Area. Athletes will compete in nearly 20 track and field events with gold medalists advancing to the state Summer Games next month in Bloomington-Normal.

This Saturday’s competition gets going with an opening ceremony around 9.
