ASMC Community Service Event

with the Special Olympics!


Sunday, October 27, 2019

2:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Colgan High School

Would you like the opportunity to come band together with families, community members, local leaders, businesses, law enforcement, and fellow ASMC members to change attitudes and support athletes?  Through the power of sports, people with intellectual disabilities discover new strengths and abilities, skills and success. Special Olympic athletes inspire people in their communities and elsewhere to open their hearts to a wider world of human talents and potential.


The Special Olympics team of Prince William County (Area-23 Avengers) is ending their 2nd season of flag football with an inter-team game.  We invite you to join your fellow ASMC Washington Chapter members and other local volunteers to help with this great event.  You can sign up to volunteer at the event or volunteer to be a super fan and cheer on these great athletes and help give them a real champion game feel!  We encourage you to make signs for the football game, dress up in your favorite super hero costume and invite your family and friends out for this fun community event.  There will be food trucks, raffle prizes, face painting and much more! 


To sign up to volunteer or get more information on the event, please send an email to Marion Buchite at fellow ASMC Washington Chapter member.
