Richmond Special Olympics Summer Games 6/6-10/17


Brother Knights and Sir Knights:

The Richmond Special Olympics Summer Games are almost here – Friday June 9 and Saturday June 10 on the campus of the University of Richmond at the Robins Center and the football stadium.

The Knights are asked to help on both days:

  • On Friday evening, from about 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM, to handout programs and lightsticks and help direct people to their seats at the stadium.
  • On Saturday, from 9 AM until 3 PM, we help athletes, their families and caregivers by providing games – such as ring toss, corn hole, putting greens and other games for them to play when they are not competing.

We need your help on both Friday evening from 6 to 7:30 and Saturday on one of two shifts: 9 to noon and noon to 3. You ca n bring your families and enjoy the games while providing help to this most worthy of enterprises.

Send me an E Mail at or call at 804-755-6203. Once I have your name and contact information I will send the list of volunteers specific information on parking, duties, times, food, report to, and so on.

This is a fun two day event and our contribution gives so much back to us.

Contact me as soon as you can so we can count on you . To those who have already volunteered, thank you and I will send you a confirming EM.

By the way, if you have access to a corn hole game and can bring it, that would be a huge help.
