The Lake of the Ozarks Can-Am Games Executive Committee recently visited the Training For Life Campus of Special Olympics Missouri in Jefferson City for a meeting and tour of their new facilities. During this visit, members of the Executive Committee were pleased to present a check to their charity partner, Special Olympics Missouri, from the 2018 Lake of the Ozarks Can-Am Police-Fire Games in the amount of $10,000. The Lake of the Ozarks Can-Am Police Fire Games took place from June 24 through July 1, 2018.  This event had over 300 participants registered for over 1,500 events. Competitors represented seven countries and 29 states, and generated approximately 1,500 room nights for the Lake of the Ozarks and surrounding areas.  

The Lake of the Ozarks is the first destination in the 40-year history of the Games to host back-to-back. The Lake of the Ozarks Can-Am Games will take place again in 2020, from June 15 through June 21. The Can-Am Police-Fire Games, first held in 1977, promote physical fitness and camaraderie among and between law enforcement, fire service, EMS, protective services personnel, and agencies. And again in 2020, all proceeds will be donated to their chosen charity partner, Special Olympics Missouri. The Can-Am Games Executive Committee has already begun the process of raising funds, through sponsorships and donations, for the 2020 Games.  For more information on donations, sponsorships, or volunteering for this great event, please visit the official website:  www.lakeozarkcanamgames.com, or email canamgames@gmail.com.
