Special Olympics Michigan Announces Unified Sport and Inclusion Center
The Special Olympics Michigan purchased the former South Christian High School campus.
It will now become the Special Olympics Michigan Unified Sport and Inclusion Center.
It will serve as a training facility for athletes from across the state.
The facility features two gyms, an auditorium and three sports fields.
Special Olympics Michigan is currently looking at what renovations need to be made.
It’s set to be the world’s largest Special Olympics facility.
“We’ve had some athletes come out and check out the facility and just seeing their reaction, seeing their tears and saying this is us, this is ours, you realize just how big of a deal this is,” said Aaron Mills with Special Olympics Michigan.
Special Olympics Michigan says they raised money for this purchase separately from money for their day to day operations.
They will still have offices in Mount Pleasant and southeast Michigan.
