A Long, Long Way

A Long, Long Way

Our love of sports begins in our hometowns, and our communities embrace athletes from all walks of life. We cheer them on at fields, on courts and in stadiums. We sit in stands and route for them in competitions. But win or lose, we admire their courage and commitment to training, sportsmanship, and teamwork.

We invite you to the opening event the Smithsonian’s Hometown Teams Exhibit at the Madigan Library at Pennsylvania College of Technology where we will feature artifacts on display from the recent Special Olympics World Games in Abu Dhabi. Many incredible athletes of the Special Olympics Pennsylvania organization donated items from their competition, and we invite you to celebrate their accomplishments and winning spirit.

There is no charge for this event and it is open to the public. Hours for the Madigan Library.
