We Scream For Special Olympics!

There are so many great things about summer, but our favorite is the Special Olympics Ohio happening June 28-30! In celebration of the Special Olympics, we’ve teamed up with Special Olympics Ohio to create a one-of-a-kind flavor, Go for the Gold Chocolate and Vanilla. To make this flavor even more delightful, a portion of the proceeds will benefit Special Olympics Ohio.

Special Olympics began in the early 1960s when Eunice Kennedy Shriver started a camp for people with intellectual disabilities. The first meet was held in Chicago in 1968. Shortly after, Ohio began a Special Olympics program called the Ohio Athletic Association, which later became known as Special Olympics Ohio in 1975.

Today, Special Olympics Inc. is the world’s largest provider of fitness training, education and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. The main goal of the organization is to focus on real sports, real competition and real achievements. Special Olympics is a worldwide movement of more than 5 million athletes.

It’s only fitting that a great flavor features a tremendous person! Special Olympian Justin Glas will be featured on the packaging of Go for the Gold Chocolate and Vanilla. Justin has been involved in Special Olympics Ohio for more than 15 years and trains in Medina County. Justin excels in track & field along with cross country skiing. He loves all things Ohio, from The Ohio State Buckeyes to LeBron James.

We can’t wait to cheer on Justin and all the other athletes competing this June!
