RC to Host Cote d'Ivoire Athletes for Special Olympics World Games

The City of Rancho Cucamonga has been named a Host City for Cote d'Ivore athletes participating in the Special Olympic World Games being held in Los Angeles in July 2015.

Cote d'Ivoire, "The Ivory Coast" of West Africa is a country of 20 million people.  The world's largest producer of cocoa and the 3rd largest producer of coffee - the Special Olympic athletes are excited to be introduced to our Rancho Cucamonga community.

Before the World Games begin on July 25, 2015, 7,000 athletes from 177 countries will be welcomed to Southern California for a three-day Host Town program where Rancho Cucamonga is one of about 100 communities from San Diego to San Luis Obispo that will host the delegations. 

Events and activities will be planned for the community to come out and show your support for the athletes and cheer them on before they head into Los Angeles to compete. Volunteer opportunities will be announced on the city website in April/May when the schedule has been finalized by the World Games.
