Olympic Dreams Of A Special Nature

Temecula has its own olympians, The City of Temecula and the Temecula Valley Unified School District are excited to present the 10th Annual Temecula Special Games on Saturday, April 14, 2018 from 9:30 am to 1:00 pm.  The Temecula Special Games will take place at Great Oak High School (32555 Deer Hollow Way). Athletes of all ages with developmental disabilities are invited attend for free

“Temecula’s Special Games attract a record number of volunteers each year providing teens to seniors with the opportunity to act as peer buddies.  Athletes pair with a volunteer to keep them safe and focused which allows parents and family members the chance to watch and support their players,” says Mayor Matt Rahn.  

Athletes receive a free t-shirt, and participate in opening ceremonies, non-competitive games, and sporting events, plus, enjoy a sponsored lunch and finish with closing ceremonies.  

Mayor Pro Tem Mike Naggar states, “Temecula’s Special Games is celebrating its first decade milestone this year.  It is a day that brings residents hope and encouragement by providing a positive, family-friendly atmosphere. I invite all residents and visitors throughout our region to experience this inspiring event that is uplifting and empowering for all ages and abilities.”

It is amazing to see how much effort the city puts into the special needs community. I hope everyone will attend this event that is celebrating its tenth anniversary.
