This week is Special Olympics Manitoba Awareness Week (June 14th to 20th), and as a long time Volunteer coach, Morning Show Co-Host Chris Sumner wanted to give the occasion a couple of plugs. Hundreds of athletes, coaches and volunteers will be participating in virtual events throughout week rather than the usual community torch runs and rallies due to current protocols in place related to COVID-19.

Special Olympics Manitoba’s (SOM) Melissa Suggit was our guest Monday morning, and she talked about this year’s theme “Accept With No Exception: Why I Love Special Olympics”, but first, she chatted about what is SOM Awareness Week?



We continued the conversation with Melissa sharing why she’s volunteered as a coach for a number of years with a couple of Special O programs.
