Special Olympics PEI Received 2024 Community Grant from the City of Summerside

Special Olympics PEI is pleased to acknowledge the City of Summerside for their support of Islanders with an intellectual disability. A long time supporter, the City of Summerside has given Special Olympics PEI a Community Support Grant in the amount of $5,000.

From weekly sport programs, volunteer training, athlete leadership training, health programming, special events and fundraisers, Special Olympics PEI is an active member of the City of Summerside community. For the past 37 years, the City of Summerside has been home to all our East Prince sport programs and activities. We currently have 166 athlete and 72  volunteers and coaches within the City of Summerside. We are proud of the work we were able to do in the City of Summerside and to call Summerside our home base for East Prince programs and services.   

Beyond this financial support, the City of Summerside, along with His Worship Mayor Dan Kutcher and other members of City Council, has been an integral part of the Special Olympics movement here on PEI.  With this grant, Special Olympics PEI will be able to continue to provide quality sports training and competitive opportunities to Summerside residents with an intellectual disability.

Special Olympics PEI is dedicated the enriching the lives of Islanders with an intellectual disability through sport. Thanks to this grant, our mission can be accomplished in the City of Summerside.
