GMRC and Special Olympics New Hampshire have shared the Livingston Track during our Wednesday afternoon workouts for the last couple years, so we reached out to them to learn a little more.
What we discovered is that SONH is currently preparing several athletes to compete in the USA Games in Florida in June and is raising money to support those athletes. The board felt this would be an excellent opportunity to give back to local athletics using funds raised for this purpose in 2021.
Please consider joining us for a special event before the afternoon workout on May 18. There will be a short presentation by SONH and their athletes about the program, followed by a donation from GMRC.
When: 5:15 p.m., May 18
Where: Livingston Park Track
Hope you can make it!
