THE Big Event in 2014!
Who isn’t aware of the big football game in February? Let’s see, I think it is called the Superbowl and it is being held in New Jersey. Yes, it is a big deal. AND, for all of you sport fanatics out there, we could also mention the Winter Olympics are in Sochi in February 2014. Yes, this also is a pretty big deal. While these huge events will provide us all with some hours of great television viewing – will they inspire you?
In June, months after these two events have passed, an event like no other will also be held in New Jersey! An inspiring and impactful sporting event!!
The Special Olympics USA Games are coming, and I would like to invite you to join us at Strider as we follow these true champions this year. With more than 70,000 spectators, the Special Olympics USA Games will have as many people in attendance as were at Super Bowl XLII. And with 3500 athletes competing in this National Event, it is holding its own compared to 5000 athletes from all over the globe in Sochi for the Winter Olympics. It is also… a BIG deal!! With 4,000,000 Special Olympics participants worldwide there will be events going on daily.
It is not only the size of the games that is the story, but rather, that these athletes will amaze and inspire you.
Here at Strider we are committed to learning about, and finding inspiration from this tremendous group of athletes. We are excited to be participating by hosting a STRIDER Adventure Zone at the Young Athletes Festival that is a part of the Games in New Jersey. Join us in our journey and learn more about Special Olympics this year by liking our STRIDER Bikes Special Needs Facebook page for updates and great stories leading up to the games this summer.
If you are already a fan, a participant, or a Special Olympics supporter, we would love to hear your stories and see your pictures. Help us spread the word!
