After 21 years in Wenatchee, Special Olympics Washington is looking for a new host city for next year's winter games.
“We’d love to stay in Wenatchee,” Beth Wojick, chief executive officer for Special Olympics Washington, said Tuesday. “But expenses have gotten to a point where we can’t afford to stay.”
The nonprofit could issue a bid proposal for a host for the 2012 Special Olympics Winter Games by April 30, The Wenatchee World reported.
The annual three-day event attracts more than 1,500 athletes and thousands more volunteers, family members and spectators.
