Holiday Greetings from SONS

Holiday Greetings from Special Olympics Nova Scotia 

We wish all our friends, athletes, coaches, volunteers and supporters the very best health and happiness this Holiday Season. We’ve highlighted some of our brightest moments of 2021 for you. 

Please consider a DONATION in support of our athletes. Programs are slowly returning throughout our regions. Your support makes a tremendous difference in their lives and in their communities.

Message from the Board Chair

It has certainly been an interesting year for Special Olympics Nova Scotia and me through my first year as Chair. The global pandemic has brought plenty of challenges to the organization as we have continued to adapt and thrive within our new normal. My sincere thanks to all of our volunteers, supporters, and regional leaders for your dedication and support.

It has been a humbling experience to see firsthand the strength of our organization as we have navigated through this ever-changing world. The pandemic has impacted everyone in different ways and SONS is no different. The leadership shown by our provincial office staff to keep our athletes, volunteers, and stakeholders engaged has been tremendous while confidently navigating uncertainty with changing public health restrictions. Our key volunteer leaders across the province stepped up like never before to ensure our athletes were supported. Our volunteers now have the resources they need to operate safely, and the mission of Special Olympics continues despite traditional ways we operate being put on hold. 
 
Even with the pandemic, SONS has had an exciting start to the new decade. This year was the start of a remarkable journey for us as we plan and pursue our next chapter of growth. We have begun dreaming and planning what the next ten years can look like, and where Special Olympics Nova Scotia can go.

Happy Holidays
Michael McCarther
