Now in its 36th year, the Special Olympics Colorado Hall of Fame has been celebrating athletes, coaches, volunteers, schools, law enforcement, and lifetime achievements since 1986. This year’s celebration will honor eight individuals, and entities, that embody inclusion and belonging.

According to Special Olympics Colorado, the Hall of Fame luncheon is their largest, single-day fundraising event of the year. The celebration sets the stage for male athlete of the year, Tim Miner, and female athlete of the year, Hanna Atkinson, to receive recognition for their accomplishments. In addition to Miner and Atkinson, six others will be recognized for being instrumental in spreading joy and empowerment while helping grow Special Olympics Colorado.
