                   Azusa Will Serve As A Host City For Special Olympics

 Council Celebrates Special Olympics

The cities of Azusa, Duarte and Glendora announced today that their respective communities have been officially selected to participate in the Special Olympics World Games Host Town program from July 21 – 24, 2015. Before the Special Olympics World Games begin on July 25, 2015, more than 7,000 athletes from 177 countries will be welcomed to Southern California through the Host Town program. As many as one hundred communities from San Luis Obispo to San Diego will have the honor of being selected as an official Host Town.

As a Host Town, the cities of Azusa, Duarte and Glendora will partner with Azusa Pacific University (APU) to welcome the 2015 Special Olympics World Games delegation. In addition to providing the athletes and coaches accommodations and training facilities, APU will host a special opening ceremony event to celebrate the delegation’s arrival. The delegation will also have the opportunity to take tours of each of the respective cities to learn more about their history and community traditions.

“In 1968, the Special Olympics began with Eunice Kennedy Shriver’s global movement to improve the lives of people with intellectual disabilities,” said Joseph R. Rocha, mayor of Azusa. “With its signature motto, ‘Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt,’ the athletes in the Special Olympics World Games teach us about a world where inclusion, respect and understanding are the guiding principles.”
