The 2013 Special Olympics Provincial Summer Games in York Region was the largest Provincial Games ever held with over 1,000 athletes, coaches and mission staff from across Ontario.
A special connection to Participation House, Markham was made this year to the Special Olympics as Domenic DiCarlo, husband of Executive Director Frances DiCarlo, was chosen to be a referee for the soccer tournaments. “This experience was nothing like anything I’ve done before. The energy and excitement from the athletes was amazing. I will apply to be a referee again next year – this was a highlight in my career as a referee!”
