The Special Olympics are returning to Pierce County’s military installations this weekend.
More than 8,000 athletes, coaches and volunteers are expected to participate in this year’s games. Seattle Seahawks coach Jim Mora and his wife, Shannon, are the grand marshals for Friday’s opening ceremonies. Jen Mueller and Doug Dillon from Fox Sports Northwest will be the emcees.
The events include aquatics, track and field, cycling, weightlifting and soccer.
