On November 24, everyone is welcome to join us from 6 to 7 p.m. PT for a virtual party to celebrate four decades of the Special Olympics movement in B.C., and the inspiring people who have made it possible!
We'll kick off the party with a live-streamed ceremony on this page hosted by legendary broadcaster Bernie Pascall, who covered the first-ever Special Olympics event in 1968 and has been a great friend to our movement and athletes ever since. Pascall will lead a ceremony featuring stories, tributes, and performances by SOBC athletes who have been staying active together through weekly dance training. And what would a Special Olympics celebration be without a dance party? After the ceremony, everyone who pre-registers can join us on Zoom for a big party where we can all dance together.
Registered participants will receive two links via email on November 24:
- 6 to 6:30 p.m. PT: Ceremony with tributes and athlete dance performances (Live stream on this website page)
- 6:30 to 7 p.m. PT: Dance party for all! (Zoom meeting)
Please note: You must register in advance to get the Zoom meeting link for the dance party. We will not post it online publicly, in order to prevent hacking and protect the security of all participants.
