California Locals to Host Athletes for World Summer Games

By Christy White

Before the Special Olympics World Games begin on July 25, 2015, 7,000 athletes from 177 countries will be welcomed to Southern California with a three-day “Host Town” program from July 21 to 24. The Host Town program will welcome the athletes to Southern California with three days of cultural events, sports training and relaxation. One hundred communities from San Luis Obispo to San Diego will have the honor of becoming official Host Towns, with Long Beach today, being named the first official community selected to participate. Get full details from the press release link below.
