During the week of May 5, 2008, the KHTS Community Resource Station welcomed representatives from the Special Olympics of Southern California. Laura Mayo,

The 2008 Special Olympics Santa Clarita Valley Spirit Games will take place on May 17, 2008 at Newhall Park, Hart Park, Placerita Jr. High and the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley.

Special Olympics Santa Clarita Valley currently hosts 7 different competitions throughout the year. These include a bowling tournament, cycling tournament and the Annual Sprit Games, which offers competition in aquatics, basketball, bocce, golf and tennis. Over 800 Special Olympic Athletes from surrounding communities attend these competitions in addition to our local athletes.

There are currently over 500 local athletes participating in the program. This is only a fraction of the potential 2,500 or more athletes residing in our valley.

The mission of the Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympics-type sports for individuals with intellectual disabilities by giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other athletes and the community.
