It is with regret that the Special Olympics GB Board of Trustees, after consulting the Director of Public Health in Plymouth, have decided to postpone the upcoming Special Olympics Mayflower 400 Commemorative Games due to take place from April 3 – 5 in Plymouth.
The difficult decision was made after careful consideration of the ever-changing CoVid-19 situation and the heightened risk to our athletes with intellectual disabilities who are some of the most vulnerable people in our society.
This is disappointing news for everyone involved, considering how much work has gone into organising the event, however the welfare of the athletes and volunteers was the primary concern and driving force.
We’d like to extend our thanks to everyone involved in this event to date – especially the athletes who we know were looking forward to taking part.
We are working with the organisers to find another date later in the year and we look forward to seeing the Commemorative Games taking place in Plymouth in the near future.
