Local Program Highlights:

Our SOWH family has grown by 30% over the past three years, resulting in, of course, many more athletes but also resulting in us experiencing some amount of "growing pains." As a result we have created a new organizational structure based on an expanded Leadership Team. We continue to participate in local events such as the Memorial Day Parade and the Torch Run and have increased our efforts to collaborate with other recreation resources in the West Hartford area.

The SOWH Facebook page and website are very active and are used quite frequently by our athletes, families, volunteers and friends. Visit us here.

Program Needs:

Transition from K-12 school programs to Special Olympics. Fundraising and event planning. Sustaining leadership.
