It does our hearts good to hear of people who raise above their circumstances to accomplish what no one believed they could! Every winter, right here in the Smokies, more of these inspiring stories are born! Ober Gatlinburg is proud to play host to the Tennessee Winter Special Olympics each year. Over 140 athletes with intellectual disabilities compete in alpine skiing & snowboarding and in speed skating events. A variety of skill levels are represented.
“The traditional lighting of the Special Olympics flame will take place on Monday morning at 9:00 on top of Ober Gatlinburg. Award presentation will begin at 2:00 pm on Tuesday.”
If you have a special young athlete who would love to participate in this wonderful event, visit the Tennessee Winter Special Olympics website for more information about how you can get involved.
