CASPER, Wyo. — Special Olympics Wyoming has rebuilt its website, made possible by a grant received from the Grace Amspoker Fund and Tony Cate Fund at the Wyoming Community Foundation.

SOWY stated in a release that the new site provides easy access to information on becoming an athlete, starting a local program, registering for state games and more.

Special Olympics Wyoming is a nonprofit organization serving children and adults with intellectual disabilities by providing sports training and athletic competition in a variety of well-coached Olympic-type sports.

Athletes and their families are never asked to pay to participate. SOWY has worked to increase awareness and inclusion throughout Wyoming and believes funds received will strengthen the work being done.

“The grant from Wyoming Community Foundation was used to rebuild our organization’s website, making it easier for everyone to find and access information about Special Olympics Wyoming programs and services,” said Special Olympics Wyoming President and CEO Jennifer Haines. “We are grateful for the support of the Wyoming Community Foundation and could not be more pleased with the result of this project as it gives us the ability to better serve all involved with Special Olympics Wyoming.”
