On March 1-3, Special Olympics South Carolina held their 2013 Mid-Winter games in Charleston, South Carolina.  Drawing from 16 “Areas” (generally groups of counties) throughout the state, the games were attended by 920 Special Olympics Athletes, 200 Unified Partners, and 500 Special Olympics Volunteers.  The games started on Friday evening with a dinner and appreciation reception followed by the Opening Ceremonies, held at McAllister Field House on the campus of The Citadel.  As each Area’s team of athletes entered the arena, and the anticipation of the weekend’s activities grew and grew, the cheering became absolutely deafening.
