Tampa Metro Civitan is PASSIONATE about Special Olympics! We love the joy of the athletes in their accomplishments and the friendships made with them, their families, Special Olympics staff and volunteers
For many years, Tampa Metro Civitan has been in charge of awards for all Special Olympics competitions held throughout the year in the Greater Tampa Bay region, at the County, Area and State levels. This involves managing a large inventory of ribbons, providing the ribbons and supplies for each sport, and then preparing, announcing and presenting the awards to our Special Olympians and their unified partners, sometimes at multiple locations on the same day. Because of our long-term and consistent involvement, our club is publicly thanked at every Opening Ceremonies and our members are well-recognized by the athletes and families.
In addition, we travel to other parts of Florida, such as ESPN Wide World of Sports at Walt Disney World, to help at the large State Competitions. Tampa Metro was asked to lead the Equestrian Awards at the 2022 USA Games to be held in Kissimmee, FL. We also volunteer at many fundraising events during the year, including Casino Nights, Publix Torch Campaign and Best Damn Race.
We Would Love to Have You at a meeting or project!
