Special Olympics Chiapas, Mexico

By Paola Martinelli

Special Olympics Chiapas Mexico is working with athletes and coaches at the state level to promote program implementation and growth, and develop 5 local programs. There is also, a Young Athletes program in the city of Tuxtla Gutiérrez, designed to draw younger athletes to the program and help them grow through sports. We are working with the Social Development Secretariat of the municipality of Tapachula to hold regional sports events that can support inclusion and opportunity for athletes. In the city of San Cristobal we have achieved constant participation of athletes in sports and social events organized by the municipality. By allowing program promotion and dissemination more athletes are included in the program. The Chiapas sub-program has increased its number of athletes and events in the last years
