SOHO Selected for 2016 Audrey Robbins Humanitarian Award
These awards are presented annually to extraordinary people and groups whose efforts and legacies have transformed Howard County residents' lives. We are very honored to have been selected for this prestigious honor. It is the direct result of the incredible group of volunteers that make up our organization. The award will be presented on April 29th at the annual ACS luncheon being held at Ten Oaks Ballroom.
Congratulations to all our amazing volunteers!
2015 Year in Review
We trained 681 athletes (including the Motor Activities Training Program and Unified Partners) in 19 sports programs.
Our sports programs were run by 37 coordinators, 110 coaches, and many other volunteers, including a large cadre of student volunteers.
Ten athletes were trained as Special Olympics Global Messengers and participated in 67 events around the state, spreading information about the Special Olympics movement and what it means to them. One of our equestrian athletes was selected to participate in the 2015 World Games held in Los Angeles and covered on ESPN!
We trained over 135 new volunteers at 11 volunteers orientation.
Whew! what a year! Thank you volunteers for providing these fantastic opportunities for our athletes!
