The Special Tigers Sports Program
The Special Tigers Sports program runs fun events where youth with intellectual disabilities partner with varsity athletes from Dalhousie University to share their love for sport. Created in 2012 by psychology student Rebecca Haworth, the program is run by the Dalhousie Varsity Council with support from the Dalhousie athletic department and Special Olympics Nova Scotia.
