CSUF to Host Special Games-Kathleen E. Faley Memorial May 4

April 23, 2007


More than 2,800 special athletes from throughout Orange County are expected to participate in the 22nd annual Cal State Fullerton Special Games-Kathleen Faley Memorial on Friday, May 4, on the practice field north of Titan Gymnasium.

The 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. program will kick off with opening ceremonies followed by non-competitive athletic events, such as basketball and football toss, T-ball, soccer goal kicks and the 50-yard dash. All of the athletes receive a commemorative award ribbon and a T-shirt.

The festivities conclude with a barbecue lunch.

The Cal State Fullerton Special Games-Kathleen Faley Memorial was launched in 1986 as a CSUF class project. Two years later, the games were dedicated to the memory of Kathleen E. Faley, a CSUF alumna who died in a car accident in 1987. She was the sister of event co-organizer Dan Faley and among the inaugural core group of Special Games volunteers. To this day, her family remains involved in the event’s planning and organization.

Volunteers are needed. For more information or to volunteer, call 278-3112.
