State Flag Football
It was a beautiful day in Fort Collins on October 26th for the State Flag Football Tournament at Colorado State University!
In 2014 the State Flag Football Tournament only had 17 teams. This year, we had 49 teams participate!
Thank you to our event sponsor, Subway, who got up at 3:00am to prepare and donate over 800 subs to our athletes!
Congratulations to the Colorado Springs Fireballs Tennis Team!
They competed in the Special Olympics North America Tennis Tournament in Hilton Head, South Carolina from October 18-21 and all placed 1st-4th in their divisions!
The Fireballs were the only team from Colorado to compete in the tournament and were among 160 athletes and unified partners from 11 US and Latin American programs in attendance!
Meet Jenny Montoya, our Volunteer Manager
Favorite Sport: I enjoy all sports, but softball is my first love. In high school, I played softball, basketball, and field hockey. I’m a big Chicago sports fan and I also enjoy watching anything and everything UW-Madison. GO BADGERS!
Hometown: Homewood, IL
Hobbies: I enjoy hiking, biking, camping, kayaking and pretty much anything outdoors. I love exploring new parks and trails with my husband, son and daughter and taking spontaneous day trips to just about anywhere in this beautiful state. Writing, photography, and videography are some of my other joys… also Italian food, cozy coffee shops and craft breweries.
What do you love about SOCO? I’ve had the privilege of experiencing many sides of Special Olympics from the perspective of a unified partner, coach, an event day volunteer, and now a staff member. I moved around quite a bit after college and always formed great friendships through Special Olympics. I admire the way in which SOCO empowers, inspires, celebrates, and brings out the best in its athletes, families, volunteers and coaches. There’s nothing more incredibly genuine than the smiles that you see at the award podium.
