ESPN spotlights Campus tornado damage

The tornado damage sustained by SOMO's Training for Life Campus caught attention from around the country, especially the sports community. Just weeks after the storm, ESPN.com featured a story about the tornado's damage to the Campus, and SOMO's difficult decision to cancel the State Summer Games in 2019 that were scheduled to be held in June.

The article on ESPN.com describes the impact of the tornado damage and the resilience of SOMO athletes, volunteers, coaches and staff who vowed to rebuild the Campus to again become a hallmark symbol of the dynamic abilities and potential of Special Olympics athletes.
