2012-2013 Year End Awards

Special Olympics Calgary had an exciting and busy 2012-2013 program season! We couldn't have done it without the tremedous support of our sponsors, donors, volunteers and athletes. With an outstanding team that we have within Special Olympics, it makes it tough but every year we like to give special attention and recognize a few individuals who have gone above and beyond their role in our organization. This year, we awarded male and female coach of the year, volunteer leadership award, Ed Whalen award and recgonized an athlete in every sport program for the sport leadership and excellence award.
