Special Olympics

The Special Olympics from Armstrong County has recently branched to include Indiana County.  The Knights are getting  involved in a BIG way.

Last month we helped with a Bowling tournament  held at Mohawk Lanes.  This May 2nd We will be helping with another bowling event – the “Unified 300 FUNdraiser”.  We’re asking for donations to sponsor a team.   Please take a form and signup form to your place of work.  Volunteers are needed.

The Track & Field summer games will take place at Penn State on June 11th through 13th.  Training sessions will be held at the Indiana High School.  Volunteers are needed.  Contact Michelle Jordan from the Special Olympics at 814 441-7981 for more information.

The training schedule   starts on  March 15th and runs every Sunday through June 7th.  ( no practice on April 12, May 10th or May 31st) .  April 25th is the regional competition at Carnegie Mellon University.    May 16th is the local competition at Armstrong High School.

In the spring we’ll  be collecting at various locations throughout town.  Similar to what we’ve done in the past for another sponsor.   All collections will be donated to the Special Olympics.

This is a great opportunity  for the Knights to help those in need.  Get involved.  Contact Joe Bobick or Mike Morris for more information.
