Message from the President and CEO of Special Olympics Alberta, Johnny Byrne

Special Olympics Alberta President and CEO, Johnny Byrne and athlete, Warren Pattison.

It is going to be a hot weekend in Medicine Hat for our Summer Games with heat advisories in effect for the entire region. Special Olympics Alberta and the Games Organizing Committee are working with our venues and medical staff to ensure safety and a quality games experience for all. We have access to top notch (air-conditioned) facilities to support our outdoor events as well as ample hydration and shade. It is going to be an awesome weekend and we can’t wait for our teams to arrive.

For those individuals who plan to attend as spectators please remember hydration, sunscreen and shade. If you are an outdoor spectator please also plan to visit one of our nearby air-conditioned facilities and take a break by watching one of our indoor sports.

Please stay up to date by checking our Provincial Games website and social media accounts for any schedule changes for outdoor sports.
