Hundreds of Special Olympic athletes have just been told they will no longer be able to participate in the one thing they look forward to throughout the year.  This organization allows for much needed socialization and friendly competition in a judgment free environment.  Until a Head of Delegation for Region 7 East Texas is assigned these individuals loose in a big way and on many levels.  We need local state officials to assist in bringing leadership to our AMAZING population! 

Participants are due to start Basketball in January but have just been told it won't be happening.  Many of these athletes have formed friendships and bonds with one another since they were young.  Ages typically range from 8 years to 99 years of age.  Their smiles are contagious!  Their high fives to team mates are priceless no matter how they scored.  We've witnessed great beauty in many events such as one athlete falling in a track race and another athlete from an opposite team stopping to help them up; with no concern of how they will place in the finals.  

Please sign the petition for Texas officials to step in and help our Region!  The athletes need your voice!! 

Help those who cannot always help themselves.  Please Sign and Share!
