More than 550 athletes throughout West Virginia have started training for the Special Olympics West Virginia Fall Games to be held in Parkersburg the weekend of October 10-12. The athletes, representing 30 counties, will showcase their courage and abilities as they compete in bowling, volleyball, flag football, and football skills over the course of three days.
To make sure these athletes have a wonderful experience, more than 225 volunteers are needed throughout this fun weekend. Parkersburg South High School will host the volleyball and football competitions, with bowling taking place at Pike Street Lanes. If you would like to volunteer for all or a portion of the event, please fill out the Fall Games Volunteer Registration and Volunteer Application through the links below or call Kellie Aikman at the Special Olympics West Virginia office at 304-345-9310.
Fans from the community are welcome to attend Fall Games and inspire the athletes to do their best.
The athletes' participation in Fall Games is made possible through the generous sponsorship of Wendy's, Foodland, Fraternal Order of Eagles and the West Virginia Department of Education and the Arts.
