The Special Olympics Commemorative Cauldron

For over 50 years, Special Olympics Athletes have worked hard, trained hard and competed to their personal best at sporting competitions around the world. The 2019 Special Olympics Alberta Winter Games, proudly hosted by the City of Calgary, are once again a testament to the undeniable strength, sport and spirit of every Athlete competing at these Games.

What started as a dream of the Demchuk family almost two years ago, has come together with the kindness and generosity of many. It is because of these amazing supporters recognized below, and along with the creative vision of Calgary Special Olympics Athlete and artist Leonka Kaluha, that Calgary finally has a monument to commemorate the legacy of Special Olympics. This Commemorative Cauldron is dedicated to 50 years of the Special Olympics Movement, and to the many Athletes who train, work and live as proud citizens in the City of Calgary.

Following the Games, this Commemorative Cauldron will be on permanent display at Winsport.
