Special Olympics Montgomery County,  Pennsylvania

 An all-volunteer organization where athletes are first!


We remember fondly all that Garrett Rice did for our Special Olympics athletes. Our friend passed away on July 1st.  His time as County Manager saw increased participation, additional sports and more volunteers. He modernized the operations of SOMC office and improved the financial position while also working full time. He was driven to improve the athlete experience and was guided by his two rules when facing a decision: Is it in the best interest of the athletes? And when in doubt refer back to rule one.  He was quite a man! If you wish to make a donation to SOMC check the details further down this page.
