    Special Olympics College needs YOU to come out and support a truly inspirational event. On March 8th, Duke will host a Unified Basketball game between teams of Duke and UNC students and Special Olympics athletes. Come be a part of history! Earlier this fall, ESPN announced a partnership with Special Olympics Unified Sports, which combines individuals both with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team. The first event was a flag football game between LSU and Alabama, another famous school rivalry, on the same day as their big football game on November 9th. It was such a great success and shed a true positive light on the universities and their students. Now, it is our turn. We are honoring the famous rivalry of North Carolina with what is sure to be an amazing experience and opportunity for all involved. We are very excited for what this event will do for the the Durham community, Duke, our students, and Special Olympics athletes. Come join the fun and be a part of history!!
