The SOIFC committees organizing community events to spread the word about the Championship

With only a 100 days left for the Special Olympics International Football  Championship, special athletes from around the world are gearing up to  give it their best. The SOIFC committees are also busy organizing  community events to spread the word about the Championship, which is  speculated to be the biggest humanitarian sports event in the world. 

On 20th April, 2019, RYA Madras Metro Trust, along with the SOIFC  committees, brought together 3000 God’s own children at Sathyam Cinemas,  Chennai for a day of cinema, food, and football. Many of the  children were introduced to football for the first time and had a great time  practicing moves. The abled, the disabled, the young, the old, the  professionals, the beginners – nobody was left behind. On 24th April, 2019,  the committees orchestrated another event at Montfort School, St. Thomas  Mount, Chennai. Students, regularly – abled and differently – abled alike , participated in several challenges such as the Toe Tap Challenge, the Keepie  Uppie Challenge, and the Dizzy Penalty Challenge, which proved to be great   fun for the participants as well as the spectators. The special kids also hand – painted a colourful mural, announcing in their own way that only a 100 days remained until the Championship.
