Strathcona County residents and local businesses are invited to attend Strathcona County's first annual Global Week of Inclusion event on Saturday, July 23, 2022 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., at the Strathcona County Community Centre Agora.

Come drop by this event, which kicks off the celebration of the Special Olympics Alberta Winter Games 2023 hosted in the County (February 24 to 26, 2023).

The County will introduce three Recreation and Games ambassadors from the region at the Global Week of Inclusion event. These ambassadors offer a unique background on the experience of a Special Olympics athlete. This will be their first speaking engagement leading up to the Special Olympics Alberta Winter Games 2023.
