Special Olympics RI

Wave was front and center at the 2011 Summer Special Olympics, held annually at the University of Rhode Island’s Ryan Center. The event offered numerous sports in which adults and children with intellectual disabilities competed. 1,500 athletes along with 500 coaches and 2,000 family members and friends gathered in an atmosphere of understanding and fun. In addition, our May candy bar drive to benefit Special Olympics RI was a nice success. Many thanks to those who helped support this great organization.
