Special Olympics USA Cycling a great success at Skillman Park

Posted on June 20, 2014

MontgomeryTownship had the honor this week of having the Special Olympics USA 2014 cycling events held  in our town at Somerset County’s Skillman Park.  Time trials and races ranged from 500 m to 15 k in length.  Teams came from all over the United States, from as far away as Hawaii.  Law enforcement officers carried the torch into the Twp. last Friday and the final awards were given out Thursday, June 19th.  There was great comraderie and sportsmanship displayed and it was  a wonderful experience for all the competitors, their families and friends, volunteers, organizers, National Guard soldiers, Montgomery Twp. Police, honored guests, and anyone who was fortunate enough to come out to see the events and happening.

Mayor Rich Smith was very pleased Thursday to be able to hand out the medals to the winners of one of the 5 k competitions.
