On June 8-9, the University of Richmond celebrates 30 years of hosting Special Olympics Virginia’s annual Summer Games on campus. More than 1,400 Special Olympics athletes from all over Virginia will travel to UR to go for the gold in state level tennis, powerlifting, softball, and track & field competitions – and just like the Richmond Spiders, they need your cheering support!
Join us during the weekend to cheer at the competitions, or at Friday night’s Opening Ceremony, where we’ll celebrate UR's 30 years of partnership with Special Olympics Virginia. Click here to sign up to cheer for some of Virginia’s most inspiring athletes and welcome them to UR! Volunteering to Cheer at Special Olympics Virginia’s Summer Games is family friendly, free, and guaranteed to be 100% FUN for all Spiders!
