BEND, OR -- Special Olympics Oregon has announced the cancellation of this year's Winter Games in Bend. CEO Margie Hunt tells KGW-TV the nonprofit needs to save money after several years of explosive growth. In 2003, Special Olympics Oregon served 1200 athletes; today, Hunt says the number is closer to 14,000.

 

Winter Special Olympics include alpine and cross country skiing, snowshoeing and snowboarding. The organization pays to get about 200 athletes to Bend and covers food and lodging. 
 
Special Olympics Oregon called off its winter games in March 2015, due to heavy wind and rain on Mt. Bachelor. It was the first time the event was forced to cancel, after 25 years in Bend.
