Our organization and Individuals we have supported have a long history with the Special Olympics.
Six youth who lived in Sunshine House competed in the 1973 Alberta Special Games held at the University of Alberta in Edmonton; Laura Flett, Heather Longtin, David Laboucan, J.D. Griffith, Rodney Flett, Kelly Lambert.
They competed in Track and Field and placed in a few events according to a Peace River Record-Gazette article published May 30, 1973.
The youth were able to attend the Games thanks to community support from the “Flowers of Hope Campaign”, one of the original fundraising drives of the organization.
