BELVIDERE PARK DISTRICT SPECIAL RECREATION: 

NASR PIRATES

All net proceeds from the “Hug An Athlete” 5K will benefit the Belvidere Park District's Special Recreation Pirate athletes.  The funds will be used towards new sports equipment, uniforms, scholarships for athletes in need, and it will help to grow the program to offer more Special Olympics sports.

In a typical season, the Belvidere Park District's Special Recreation “Pirates” athletes have the option to play in 10 different sports:  Winter—Aquatics/Snowshoe, Spring—Athletics Track & Field/Bocce, Summer—Bowling /Golf/Softball/Tennis/Volleyball, and Fall—Basketball.  As Covid restrictions are lifting, we are curently able to offer most of these events.  Our programs have grown over the years and with your participation in the "Hug An Athlete" 5K we will be able to offer more to our great group of athletes.

This year, athletes will meet you at the finish line ready with fist bumps and high fives!
