Each year we have over 200 Athletes participating in Fall sports. The culmination of their hard work is competitions, and no one competition more exciting than the Fall State Games in Virginia Beach. Due to the number of Athletes participating in SOVA Area 6, we must randomly select Athletes to attend the Games. Part of the cost for sending our delegation of Athletes, coaches and chaparones is covered by Special Olympics Virginia. But still, we must raise approximately $10,000 to cover additional costs for those selected to attend the Games.
Please consider ‘adopting’ an Athlete by donating $62.50 for one Athlete’s participation expenses. Or if you’d prefer, please donate any amount, large or small, to help us reach our goal of $10,000. We appreciate all donations large and small that allow many of our Athletes to take part in the State Games! Thank you!!

Our Special Olympics VA Area 6 Athletes have started 8 weeks of training for Golf, Roller Skating, Soccer, Volleyball, Bocce and Bowling. After this training is complete 160 of our Athletes, coaches, and chaperones will be randomly chosen to attend the State Level two day “Fall Championship” competitions. This year as in the past the Fall Championships will be held at Virginia Beach, VA November 7-8, 20125. Attending this event gives our athletes a chance to compete with Special Olympics Athletes from other parts of the state, show off their skills and determination, and put meaning in their efforts.
Our volunteers along with the Special Olympics office staff are all hard at work to raise funds so we can attend this event. We need to raise the almost $10,000.00 required to send our Area 6 Delegation of 160 athletes coaches and volunteers to the Special Olympics Fall Championships. We hope to have pledges, grants and scholarships, but need your help. Any donation will help, from you, a family member, a friend, or a business. Please take a moment to make a donation, small or large, and then pass this link to anyone you know who you think would want to make a donation and help us reach our goal and help our athletes..”be all they can be.”
