Special Olympics

On August 13, 2013, Special Olympics Colorado (SOCO) and the Colorado Rapids kicked off the second annual Colorado Rapids Special Olympics Unified All-Star Soccer season at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colo.

The partnership is a program that provides unique training, competitions and social experiences for not only individuals with intellectual disabilities but for everyone involved.

Through the generosity of the Kroenke Sports Charities’ Teammates for Kids program, in addition to financial and in-kind support from Dick’s Sporting Goods, Coca-Cola and the Colorado Rapids, 11 athletes and coaches from Colorado will have the opportunity to engage with the Colorado Rapids in a one-of-kind experience over the next six weeks.
