The Special Olympics are coming to the Utah Summer Games for the first time in Cedar City! This is an amazing event, and one that has honestly been lacking from the Utah Summer Games. Cedar City has hosted the Utah Summer Games since the mid 1980’s, and is one of the feature events every Summer in Cedar City and Iron County. Having the Special Olympics this year is huge, and I am not in the loop, but something that I personally would like to see become a feature of the Utah Summer Games. What a great opportunity to see Sports at their absolute best, when athletes compete for the joy of the Sport it’s self and not all the other stuff that Sports has become!
The Opening Ceremonies are tonight at 7 PM in the Eccels Coliseum. I am a little late posting this, the torch run has already passed through town. Come out and support these wonderful athletes in a tremendous event!
