With the assistance of more than 150 volunteers, Marklund’s clients enjoyed fun outdoor activities at the annual Marklund Summer Games. Bicycle and walking races, face painting, soccer games, bean bag toss, hula hoop fun, sand art and brought many smiles and cheers for our wonderful athletes!
Marklund's Summer Games are our version of Special Olympics. Our clients cannot attend Special Olympics since they need assistance to take part in events and activities. So we created our own event 18years ago. It is very uplifting for all involved--and a lot of fun!
Volunteers are welcome to help out.
Save the date for the 2014 Summer Games:
