This year, Special Olympics Rhode Island is proud to bring you the first-ever Virtual Summer Games on May 29th & 30th! Due to COVID-19, we had to significantly alter our State Summer Games experience and move it to an online format. The 2020 Virtual Summer Games will be unlike any other competitions that SORI has ever hosted. It will include opportunities for athletes to compete in a variety of events from the safety of their home. It’s also an incredible opportunity to virtually bring together not only our athletes, but family members, coaches, volunteers and sponsors.
