Cheer on Special Olympics athletes and their Unified Partners as they play in a Unified Basketball game! Special Olympics Unified Sports is dedicated to promoting social inclusion through shared sports experiences, and was inspired by the principle that playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding. Posters and markers will be provided to cheer on those playing! While cheering on our athletes, you can also support them by pledging to stop saying the “R-word.” The Spread the World to End the World Campaign asks people to pledge to stop saying the R-word as a starting point toward creating more accepting attitudes and communities for everyone. Sign the poster that will be provided as your pledge!

Children 11 years and under must be accompanied by an adult. (At least 1:3 adult:child ratio) 


When you sign up for the project above you get a free Love SLO t-shirt. The shirt is available to be picked up at any time from J. Carroll (113 Cross St., San Luis Obispo, CA 93401 / 595-1000). Go into the main lobby, tell them you signed up for Love SLO, and they'll give you your shirt. Easy as that! Otherwise we'll have your shirt at the Mission Plaza the morning of the event. 

Love SLO (March 16th) begins at 8:00am in the Mission Plaza. Festivities (free food, fun, etc.) begin at 8:00am and the Rally will begin around 8:30am. You will meet here before going to your project location. When you arrive, you'll want to find your project sign and meet your project leader. After the Rally, you will meet at your project sign and hear important instructions from your project leader before going to your project location.
