Carter Chevrolet volunteered at the Special Olympics Connecticut Summer Games at Southern Connecticut State University over the weekend.

Our employees once again showed its commitment to our community, by helping out at the Cycling and Swimming competitions. We loved cheering on all the athletes who participated in the Special Olympics Connecticut Summer Games, and want to congratulate them all on their amazing achievements. They showed us the true meaning of hard work, and their dedication truly inspired us.

Speaking on the event, Debbie Horne of Special Olympics Connecticut said, “It gives them the opportunity to really demonstrate that they are capable and amazing athletes who can swim fast and who can work so hard to achieve the goals that they do.”

This year, over 2,500 athletes competed throughout the weekend at the Special Olympics Connecticut Summer Games. This event holds a special place in the hearts of all of our employees who volunteer.
