SOC Golf Classic 2018


Special Olympics Calgary's
19th annual Golf Classic
on Monday, June 25th, 2018

Join us for a round of Golf
To get Special Olympics athletes in the game
 
Special Olympics Calgary's Golf Classic is hosted annually to raise funds and awareness supporting the sport programs ran locally in Calgary for individuals with intellectual disabilities. 
 
Special Olympics Calgary (SOC) is a volunteer driven registered charity whose mission is to enrich the lives of Albertans with an intellectually disability through sport. But Special Olympics is more than just sports, and a one time event. Special Olympics is in the community every day of the year, providing a combination of fun, fitness and social activity that helps build the confidence and life skills of our athletes. SOC has over 800 athletes with support and coaching from 300+ volunteers, participating in 21 different summer and winter sports.
 
SOC relies on the generosity of individuals, groups corporations and special events to survive as we receive no direct government funding to sustain our operations. 76% of our annual operating budget is raised through generous donations right here in Calgary. Currently, we require approximately $750,000 dollars to cover the costs associated with programming. Proceeds from the Golf Classic will directly help us achieve this goal.
 
Please join us on the greens June 25th with our Special Olympics athletes, and local celebrities for a fun day of golf and supporting our athletes to achieve their best.
