FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE : October 01, 2021


Austin, TX 10/01/2021– This October, Special OIympics Texas will host an inspirational morning to celebrate Special Olympic athletes’ achievements and successes at the Breakfast with Champions presented by Chick- fil-A. It will be an event to celebrate our hard-working and talented athletes, learn more about SOTX events and programs, and thank our community supporters. The Special Olympics Breakfast with Champions will take place Friday, October 22nd at the Austin Renaissance Hotel.

The goal of the event is to raise funds and awareness for individuals with intellectual disabilities. We appreciate the help of our event sponsors in doing so. Thank you, Chick-fil-A, Kalahari Resorts and Conventions, Superior HealthPlan, Austin American-Statesman, Austin FC, Brandt, Pinch A Penny Pool Patio and Spa, and United Healthcare. Donations from the event will support Special Olympic athletes’ participation in programs such as Unified Champion Schools, Healthy Athletes, sports and competition, and more. This helps athletes and their families like the Chacon family. Joseph and Yvette Chacon are the proud parents of Elena Chacon, a young lady with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. Together, they work tirelessly to support her and other special needs individuals through their work. Joseph Chacon serves as Chief of Police for the Austin Police Department, and Yvette is an inspired mom, police spouse, and special needs advocate. 

“Chick-fil-A Austin is proud to support The Breakfast With Champions event as it honors the accomplishments of Special Olympics athletes and celebrates Austin community heroes,” said Ryan Saum, Lead Operator of the Chick-fil-A restaurants in the greater Austin area.
