Thank you, Butte!
We would like to express our sincerest appreciation for the warm welcome and overwhelming support our Special Olympics Montana (SOMT) athletes received during our 2019 State Basketball tournament! Butte is a community truly unparalleled in terms of “lending a helping hand.”
So many of you gave of your time, talent and treasure to help pull this event together, and with more than 685 athletes on 43 different teams participating in nearly 190 games … well, we simply could not have done it without you! Our mission of support and inclusion — of changing the world one life at a time — was demonstrated by each and every one of you during the tournament, and for this we are so grateful.
Next year marks the 50th Anniversary of Special Olympics here in Montana. We look forward to again partnering with the Butte community for the 2020 State Basketball tournament as we celebrate half a century of service to thousands of Montana athletes. Please plan to join us next November when we return to Butte for more SOMT State Basketball!
Again, our heartfelt thank you, Butte, America!
