Special Olympics Indiana hosting 'Breakfast with Champions' at Four Winds Field next week – WNDU

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) – Special Olympics Indiana is hosting its annual “Breakfast with Champions” event is next week.
Attendees will hear from local Special Olympics athletes and their coaches. They’ll be highlighting the impacts of the Unified Track and Field program at South Bend’s John Adams High School.
“Last year was their very first year in competition. And when they went to the state meet, they ended up in fourth place,” says Jeff Mohler, president and CEO of Special Olympics Indiana. “They had 45 members of the team. And this year already, they have up to 60 members of the team. So, they’re growing, they’re getting better, and all 60 of them have never participated in track and field before, so it’s an opportunity for them to learn a new sport.”
Meanwhile, Special Olympics Indiana is looking for volunteers in St. Joseph County, which you can learn more about at this event.
“So, what we’re experiencing right now is that we’re about 75 percent back to normal of our 2019 numbers,” Mohler says. “But as we get back into the spring season, we’re thinking that we might even be closer to 100 percent. So, we definitely need those coaches who were with us before who haven’t really done much because of COVID, we could really use them to come back and help out at practices and coach our athletes. But we’re also looking to expand the program of course, so that would also mean more volunteers are needed.”
Breakfast with Champions is happening at Four Winds Field on Thursday, April 28, from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.
There is no charge to attend, and there’s still room for people to join! You can email [email protected] to register.
