July is Special Olympics PA—Area M month at all local Karns Quality Foods stores. On July 12th and July 26th Area M athletes will be Celebrity Baggers. Stop by to support our athletes while doing your grocery shopping...be sure to buy one of the Torches!
THANK YOU to Karns for all of the support they give our program!!
Our Mission: Special Olympics PA Area M helps children and adults with intellectual difficulties grow stronger with body, mind and spirit through a year-round program of sports training and athletic competition.
Our Purpose: Special Olympics is focused on accomplishments rather than winning or losing. The benefit to the athlete is increased confidence and positive self image. In addition involvement on the part of family and friends helps develop healthier family relationships and greater acceptance by the community as a whole.
Our Words To Live By:
