Capitol Hill Day Recap

We were so honored to represent Maryland at the 2022 Special Olympics Virtual Hill Day. There were so many opportunities to share the great things that our athletes, staff, and communities are doing for our 6,102 athletes, and hopefully more in 2023.

The purpose of “Hill Day” is for representatives from each state/program to request funding from local government officials for specific areas of Special Olympics to further improve our athlete’s health, leadership abilities and opportunities, and accessibility to local sports free of charge.
