This past Sunday, the Knights Columbus hosted the Special Olympics Hometown Softball Games. Taking place at Etobicoke, Ontario’s Centennial Park, the games are organized for people with physical and intellectual disabilities. Blessed with perfect weather, a total of 16 teams and over 200 athletes participated in the event. The Knights, who regularly look after the event, provided the volunteers, lunches, umpires and trophies. In 2005 the Knights pledged $1 million over four years to the Special Olympics and this has since been renewed through 2016. It is a stalwart partnership that spans across all of North America. To date, the Knights have raised more than $526 million for programs for people with intellectual and physical disabilities.
