Special Olympics targets major cities

Special Olympics officials are working with New York City to attract more athletes and volunteers in large cities where scarce sports facilities make the events more difficult. "If we see ourselves as a platform for social change, there's no better place to do it than in a city like New York," said Andrea Cahn, director of Urban Strategy and Government Relations for Special Olympics North America. "If we can make that social change happen here, it should have a ripple effect throughout the world." The Oregonian (Portland)/Associated Press
