That Time of Year

It is that time of year. The time when our beloved New Orleans Saints will once again take to the gridiron in hopes of another Super Bowl victory.  Here, at Special Olympics Louisiana, we are very proud to work with the Saints on many projects throughout the year.  We are very excited to watch this Sunday as the Saints will match up against the Arizona Cardinals in the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio.

From all of our athletes, coaches, volunteers, and staff at Special Olympics Louisiana, we wish the Saints a great 2012 season!  Geaux Saints!

Did you know that flag football will be held at Special Olympics National Games in 2014?  It’s true!  Special Olympics athletes will be able to compete in this sport along with 13 other sports that will be offered.
