Why: Bay Area Games is the culminating event of Special Olympics Northern California Schools Partnership Program. Over 550 student-athletes from around the Bay Area have been training for weeks with their classmates and peers for a chance to compete. For the first time there will be a unified partner competition, where students with and without disabilities come together as teammates, fostering communities of acceptance and inclusion for all. This educational program teaches everyone how to play unified to live unified!
