Athletes from across the state have been training for weeks to compete in the 23rd annual Special Olympics Texas (SOTX) Winter Games taking place Feb. 4 – 7 in Austin, Georgetown and Round Rock.
Approximately 2,500 athletes will compete in bowling, volleyball and powerlifting. In addition, the games include an opening ceremony hosted by Fox 7 meteorologist Scott Fisher, an athlete’s village, clinics, demonstrations, victory dance and closing ceremony.
Competitions run from Feb. 5 – 7, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Volunteers are needed. For more information and a complete schedule, visit sotx.org/wintergames.
In addition, beginning Jan. 1, Texas drivers can opt to donate $5 or more to SOTX. The option will first appear when drivers renew vehicle registration at a county tax office or online in counties that offer online payment. For more information, visit sotx.org/giveus5.
