Co-ops sponsor Kentucky's Special Olympics competitions

Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives are proud to be Platinum Sponsors of the Special Olympics State Summer Games.

The statewide games take place at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, and include competitions in track and field, swimming, rhythmic gymnastics, bocce and flag football.

“Our sponsorship is just one of the many ways that co-ops support our local communities,” said Joe Settles, manager of Member Services. “We’re especially pleased to be part of the Special Olympics because it touches so many lives. One of every six families in Kentucky is involved, either directly through the athletes or indirectly through coaches, donors and volunteers.”

The state summer games are the Kentucky Special Olympics’ largest competition of the year. Typically, 1,200 athletes, 600 coaches and 500 family members attend. Each athlete qualifies through participation at a regional or area-level event.
