The Manchester Honda family volunteered at the Special Olympics Connecticut Summer Games at Southern Connecticut State University over the weekend. We are so proud to have been part of such a great event!

Our Manchester Honda employees once again showed its commitment to our community, by helping prepare sandwiches for the athletes and by volunteering at the Cycling and Swimming competitions. We loved cheering on all the athletes who participated in the Summer Games. They showed us the true meaning of hard work and dedication!

“It’s family. It definitely is family for not only the athletes, but the parents, the coaches, the siblings, all the volunteers, a lot of them have been coming out for 30-40 years,” said Debbie Horne of Special Olympics Connecticut.

More than 2,500 athletes competed throughout the weekend at the Special Olympics Connecticut Summer Games. This event holds a very special place in the hearts of our employees who volunteer and cheer on the athletes year after year.
