COLUMBIA — On behalf of Special Olympics Missouri, please extend my deepest gratitude to the volunteers, organizers, sponsors and spectators from Columbia and the surrounding areas that made the 2012 State Summer Games an incredible success. We couldn't have done it without each and every one of them. Everyone, from athletes to staff members, benefited from the endless hospitality and support from the community.
