Denver, CO
– September 30, 2020 – Special Olympics Colorado (SOCO), Colorado’s premiere sports organization for individuals with intellectual disabilities, is delighted to welcome an exemplary group of individuals into the Special Olympics Colorado Hall of Fame on Wednesday, October 7th from 11:30 AM – 12:30 AM where guests can tune in to watch on YouTube or Facebook Live.

More than 150 names have been inducted into Special Olympics Colorado Hall of Fame since 1986 and 2020 is no exception. While the world grapples with a global pandemic, Special Olympics Colorado is working diligently to pull out all the virtual stops to honor nine individuals, and entities, critical to living, breathing and spreading inclusion around the Centennial State.

Special Olympics Colorado’s Virtual Hall of Fame presented by Comfort Dental is the largest, single-day fundraising event of the year. The celebration sets the stage for male athlete of the year, David Riley, and female athlete of the year, Mackenzie Beauvais-Nikl, to receive widespread recognition for incredible accomplishments within the movement. David and Mackenzie will receive their awards alongside seven other individuals, and entities, that have been instrumental in spreading kindness and helping grow Special Olympics Colorado.

“Annually, our Hall of Fame event is a showcase of the very best within the Special Olympics Colorado community,” explained Special Olympics Colorado President and CEO, Megan Scremin. “2020 is no different. Our inductees are prodigious supporters of inclusion and work tirelessly to provide opportunities for our athletes to better themselves and the world around them.”

At 11:30 AM the hour-long live-streamed program commences and will be made available through Special Olympics Colorado’s Facebook page and YouTube channel.

Interested attendees may join as a table captain (host your own virtual table) or tune in individually.
