Keith Balleck: Great opportunity for athletes

To the editor:

The Kiwanis Club of Craig would like to invite and encourage everyone in the community to attend the Special Olympics Colorado Western Area Summer Games this Saturday. Athletes from throughout the Western Slope, including Moffat County, will compete in swimming, weightlifting and track and field events. The Kiwanis Club helps to operate the event and provide this opportunity for these deserving athletes.

The games are free to attend and will be held beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday at Moffat County High School. Cheering for these athletes, who have worked hard to prepare for the competition, is welcome and encouraged. Please help us to fill the bleachers and cheer on and support these special athletes.

A few hours out of your day can make a huge difference in theirs.

Keith Balleck

President, Kiwanis Club of Craig
