Special Olympics Leicester 2009

The Special Olympics GB National Summer Games will be held in Leicester between the 25th and 31st July 2009. Over 2,700 athletes representing 19 Special Olympics regions across the UK will visit the city of Leicester over the seven day period along with 1200 coaches and 1500 volunteers.  This promises to be an amazing time for all involved and is indeed a very special privilege that Leicestershire is the host County.
