Special Olympics Montana Cancels 2018 State Winter Games

Special Olympics Montana has canceled the 2018 State Winter Games in Whitefish, a move that leadership says is part of its attempt to revamp the way the organization serves athletes, coaches and volunteers across the state.

The games were scheduled to run from March 4-6 at Whitefish Mountain Resort.

According to Bob Norbie, president and CEO of Special Olympics Montana, the organization has experienced significant growth and expansion in the last decade, and now must revise the way it operates in an attempt to be more accessible to more athletes while sustaining the growth.
