Team Canada

Today the team is off to Los Angeles! LA 2015 here we come!

Special Olympics Team Canada has had an incredible Special Olympics World Games Los Angeles 2015 Host Town experience! Everywhere they’ve been greeted with enthusiastic smiles and high fives, and the most generous hospitality. Yesterday the team enjoyed morning recreation on the beautiful Chapman University campus, followed by an awesome afternoon at the OC Fairalongside 1,000 World Games athletes from all over the globe. The day was capped with a great dinner (and of course more dancing) courtesy of our Host Town organizers, Knights of Columbus Orange County, CA, and Celebration USA, followed by a walk back to Chapman where the team was cheered through the streets. Big thanks to Host Town Orange and Anaheim organizers for making these incredible experiences possible!
