Athletes speak at Sheetz opening in Brownsville

On Thursday morning, Special Olympics Pennsylvania athletes Zachary Williams and Haleigh Sommers spoke to a crowd at the grand opening of a Sheetz store in Brownsville, Pa. They did a fantastic job speaking to the crowd and were joined by 102.5 WDVE personality Chad Tyson to accept a generous $2,500 donation to Special Olympics Pennsylvania!

We want to hear your story

Are you a Special Olympics Pennsylvania athlete with a story to tell?

Of course you are.

We’re looking for athletes to share any recent success stories for the Summer Edition of the Special Olympics Athlete Review (SOAR) newsletter! Your story can be as long as you’d like. All we want if for you to be yourself and tell us something meaningful about your experiences through Special Olympics!

We’ve extended the deadline to next Friday, so if you do want to share a story, send it to Jordan Schubert.

To view an example of our SOAR newsletter from earlier this year, follow this link.

Welcome to our blog

So feel free to share content with us so we can keep the entire state up-to-date on all the coolest SOPA happenings!

In the meantime, please take a moment to connect with us on our social media sites (couldn’t leave this post without a shameless plug. You know how it goes…)
