Active Living with Special O!

SO Bocce
Special Olympics in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows is once again offering a variety of active and fun programs. This fall participants can look forward to traditional programs such as bowling and swimming but they also offer a variety of other sports and games such as Bocce, Alpine Skiing, and Rhythmic Gymnastics.

The local Special Olympics committee is organized by Rachel Borer and she has a great line up of coaches and volunteers already in place and eager to begin this fall session.

so-logoRachel  notes that she is particularly excited about the programming this year and encourages both returning and new athletes to consider the variety of options to chose from. Costs are varied and funding support may be available to those in need.

Interested participants can register on line or by phone. Please contact either, Rachel Borer at 604-737-3125 or by email at  or the local coordinator, Lee Miller by email at
