On May 11, 2013, the University of Hartford hosted the Special Olympic Connecticut Eastern Regional Games for the 10th straight year. Approximately 700 athletes, 200 coaches and 400 volunteers participated in 2 sports.
The Special Olympic Connecticut Eastern Region comprises 66 towns in 5 Connecticut counties: Hartford, Windham, Tolland, Middlesex and New London. It serves 1,900 athletes with intellectual disabilities and another 1,200 Unified Sports Partners. The Eastern Regional Games were the largest Regional Competition in 2013.
Alas, all good things come to an end. In an effort, to balance travel time for all of the teams in the region, the games have been moved to a new venue in the state. The University of Hartford was honored with the opportunity of hosting this wonderful event for ten years. We wish all of the athletes the best of luck in all of their endeavors.
