In Addition to PEI teams from several regions in NB will be participating.  We are happy to welcome Capital Region, Fundy Region, Southeast Region and the host region of Western Valley to this major event. We are sure each team will leave with new friends, happy memories and of course… many medals!

“We could never be as successful at offering the high calibre events that we currently provide without the help, support and dedication of many volunteers. I would like to recognize the 2015 Organizing Committee for their efforts. Without their community connections, love of our program, and dedication to community service we would never be able to offer an event of this magnitude to such a deserving group of people; our Special Olympics Athletes” Astle States.

Opening Ceremonies will take place on February 19th at 6:00pm at the Woodstock High School Theatre.
