Special Olympics athletes Katie West from Allegheny County and Kristen Lindsey from Butler County were also in attendance along with SOPA’s President and CEO Matt Aaron.

“Events like this – and support from wonderful partners like Chevron and Pro Football Alumni – directly support our athletes as they challenge themselves physically, demonstrate courage, and create new friendships,” said Matt Aaron, Special Olympics Pennsylvania President & CEO. “Through Special Olympics, our athletes build self-confidence, learn the value of teamwork, and build a positive self-image that carries over in classrooms, at home, work, and our communities.”
