Special Olympics North Dakota Summer Games moved to virtual event
FARGO — The Special Olympics North Dakota State Summer Games, which were scheduled for June 4-6 in Fargo, will not be held.
In a news release, President and CEO Kathleen Meagher said the cancellation of face-to-face events is a precaution during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Special Olympics North Dakota State will continue offering programs through the spring and summer for people with and without intellectual disabilities. In addition to providing resources for athletes to continue to train at home, SOND is offering a “virtual” state Summer Games competition in 11 events in track and field and strength/powerlifting, with the opening and awards ceremony on June 11. This event is also open to all people with and without intellectual disabilities.
The ceremony will air on the SOND Facebook page and be available to view on demand on the organization's website. For more information or to register, go to specialolympicsnd.org .
