2/27 Special Olympics of Kentucky
Sherry Cooke will present an invitation to join and participate in the many athletic activities offered by the Special Olympics of Kentucky organization (SOKY). Sherry says she “would love to at least give everyone an idea of what Special Olympics offers, how it’s affected our kids’ lives and the information on how to get involved.” Sherry and other volunteers are trying to re-energize the Special Olympics participation here in Fayette County and have formed a new organization – SOKYFC. Many of them are parents with special-needs family members who do not or did not get involved in sports or Special Olympics until their late teens. As Sherry put it, “participating in sports has done wonders for our children and we all wish we had gotten them involved much earlier.” Sherry will share information with the ASBG on how to get involved in the many year-round activities offered by SOKY.
