Gillette To Host Special Olympics Wyoming 2020 Summer Games
Christine Hay carries the torch for opening ceremonies of the 2018 Special Olympic Summer Games.
The Special Olympics Wyoming 2020 Summer Games will be held in Gillette April 20 and May 1 and 2. Phil Grabrick, local coordinator of the Special Olympics Wyoming Gillette Masters program, submitted a bid cataloging facility availability, community excitement, involvement, and support.
“Our organization has held this event in Laramie for the last fifteen years, and they have been a terrific host,” said Special Olympics Wyoming President & CEO Priscilla Dowse in a Aug. 28 press release. “Returning the games to Gillette under Phil’s leadership is exciting. We’re looking forward to working with his team and the community to provide the best for our athletes.”
The three-day event is expected to bring in around 1,000 visitors to the area. The competition venues include Campbell County and Thunder Basin high schools along with the Aquatic, Pronghorn, and Campbell County Recreation centers.
