Special Olympics World Games

The world is coming! And as many as 100 Host Towns will play a very vital part in welcoming the World Games delegations to Southern California. Before a single one of the 7,000 Special Olympics athletes competes at the 2015 World Games, Special Olympics delegations from around the world will be treated to three memorable days of recreation, entertainment, and cultural exchange at their Host Towns.
