Team effort: The Special Olympics Rockdale management team for the 2009-2010 year was installed and kicked off another year of planning for events for developmentally challenged participants. Special Olympics Rockdale holds games and events in seven sports - basketball, bocce, track and field, aquatics, golf, softball and bowling - throughout the year and serves about 240 clients or participants. One of the biggest challenges facing the non-profit organization is transportation, as it recently lost $8,000 in funding due to state economic budget cuts.
