Special Olympics Young Athletes spring season
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
I would just like to remind you all that our Special Olympics Young Athletes spring season will be starting next week on January 27th! If you are planning on coming, please send us an email at pittsopaya@gmail.com by Friday Jan 19th so we know how many volunteers we need. The program will be held in the William Pitt Union in Oakland room 501 (fifth floor) from 10:00-11:00am. If you are driving to our program there is street parking near the Cathedral of Learning, and there is also the Soldiers and Sailors parking garage right across the street. We recommend entering the William Pitt Union through the doors that face Fifth Avenue and walk straight towards the elevators. As a reminder, there is no cost to participate in the program and no pre-registration necessary. We will have a registration form for you to fill out when you arrive. The volunteers and I are excited to get the season started, so we hope to see you and all the kiddos on the 27th! Don't forget to bring a water bottle!
