About This Activity

Nashua Special Olympics, in partnership with the town of Pelham and sponsored by the First Congregational Church, is hosting the Old Home Day 5K Race and Walk on September 19, 2015 in Pelham. The proceeds will benefit the Nashua Special Olympics program.

 

The race will be officially timed by Yankee Timing Company, and, in addition to the 5K run, there will be a simultaneous 2.5-mile walk. The race and walk start at Meeting House Park in Pelham Common at the intersection of Main St. and Windham Road in front of the First Congregational Church, and meander through Pelham neighborhoods.

 

Nashua Special Olympics, a local division of Special Olympics New Hampshire, is a program dedicated to enhancing the lives of people with developmental disabilities through competitive sports training. A nonprofit organization, Nashua Special Olympics consists of about 400 athletes, coaches, volunteers and family members, who work together to train, organize and promote athletic opportunities for Special Olympics Athletes. Nashua Special Olympics serves the greater Nashua Area and surrounding towns including Pelham, Hudson, Litchfield, Merrimack and more. The program offers both unified sports – partnering developmentally challenged athletes with peer mentors – and traditional sports. Some of the many sports offered include Unified Basketball, Bowling, Unified Softball, Unified Soccer, Swimming, Bocce, Track and Field, Unified Floor Hockey, Alpine Skiing, Cross Country Skiing, Snowshoe and Unified Golf. Athletes train throughout the year and participate in local, regional, state and national competitions.

 

Nashua Special Olympics relies on the dedicated volunteers and family members, who donate their time coaching, partnering and organizing events. Fundraising is key to ensuring the program has the facilities and equipment it needs to provide opportunities to our athletes.
