Brockville - Over 150 attended the Brockville & Area Special Olympics'  "Breakfast with Champions" on Thursday morning at the Brockville Legion with proceeds from the event going to the Special Olympics program.

The breakfast was a celebration to recognize the time and effort the athletes devote to their sports and to honour those who have competed and will compete at the provincial and national levels. As well its an opportunity to introduce the athletes to the organization's friends and supporters in the community.

One of the athletes, Sandi Mercier spoke during the breakfast. She has been selected to TEAM CANADA and will be attending the World's Summer Games in Los Angeles in July 2015. This will be a first for a Brockville athlete.

The Brockville and Area Special Olympics Ontario had sixty-plus athletes registered in September for their sport programs. They will have an opportunity to participate in one or all of the weekly sports programs - Swimming, 10 Pin Bowling, Curling, Floor Hockey, Athletics (Track & Field), Softball, Basketball, and Nordic Skiing.

With the help of the many volunteers they are improving their sport program delivery and helping their athletes be successful and socially involved in their community.
