Omicron Kappa Zeta Chapter: The Special Olympics Specialists

Much like our beloved sorority, the Special Olympics is an organization of firsts. It is the first and ONLY organization to offer training and competition for individuals with intellectual disabilities. This organization helps others excel by offering year round activities for children and adults that promote physical fitness, team work, courage, friendship development, and much more.

On June 1st, the OUTSTANDING Omicron Kappa Chapter volunteered for the 2014 State of Georgia Special Olympics Summer Games. More than 1800 Special Olympics athletes convened that weekend for various Olympic type events including Aquatics, Soccer, Volleyball, Gymnastics and Tennis. We had the honor and privilege of assisting with the Tennis matches.

These athletes were amazing! They were serious about their games and gave their competitors a run for their money. Our chapter acted as ball keepers and made sure the athletes were equipped to keep the matches running smoothly. This is an annual volunteer event for the chapter and we highly encourage everyone to donate their time to such a great organization.
