“The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.”

Many individuals involved with the Morrow County Board of DD participate in Special Olympic sporting events year-round.  The “Whetstone Cougars” teams include:  Basketball, Volleyball, Golf, Softball, Track and Powerlifting. These athletes compete with other Special Olympic teams across our region and state.  For more information about Morrow County Special Olympics, please contact Special Olympics Coordinator Kelly Hufford at 419-569-0714 or email khufford@clearwatercog.org
