Special Olympics Hellas in Komotini!

The Development Program of Special Olympics Hellas is expanding rapidly throughout Greece, with the valuable support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. A recent stop is Komotini, where we give the opportunity to people with intellectual disabilities in the area to join the sports: bowling, badminton, climbing, as well as in competitions and sports activities of the Special Olympics!

On our two-day visit:

– We signed a Cooperation Agreement with the Municipality of Komotini.

– We have secured the support of the Region of Eastern Macedonia – Thrace.

– We enjoyed the hospitality of the Association for the Care of People with Disabilities of Mental Retardation of Rodopi "Agioi Theodoroi" and the AXIZO IKE Laboratory, and we applauded the beneficiaries of the Association who took part in sports activities.

– We planned with our coaches the next steps.
