Day of Champions, Mason County
Day of a Million Smiles
Thursday, May 23, 2019
9:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.
South Sound Stadium at North Thurston High School
Spectators wanted! Come witness this event and cheer on these special athletes.
The Public can bring sensitive documents to be shredded on site free of charge; however donations will be accepted to support the mission of South Sound Crime Stoppers.
“The more we each do to safeguard our vital information the better protected we are against those who would use it for identity theft and other illegal activities. It’s much easier to prevent these types of crimes in the first place than it is to try to find the criminal and repair the financial damage later” said Thurston County Prosecutor Jon Tunheim, a Crime Stoppers board member.

For much of their lives, students with special needs remain on the sideline cheering for their non-disabled peers and siblings. Day of Champions allows students with disabilities/challenges to participate in modified track and field stations specifically designed for them so that they can be champions.
