A new Special Olympics Colorado license plate is available to motorists in the state, thanks to Governor Polis who signed the Teri Leiker Act in June, 2021. The act will raise funds and awareness for Colorado’s largest sports organization for people with intellectual disabilities.
“This bill honors the life and spirit of Teri Leiker, who epitomized the essence of the Special Olympics movement,” says Megan Scremin, President & CEO of Special Olympics Colorado. “Teri’s legacy will continue to make an incredible impact on the lives of thousands of Coloradans for many years to come.”
Teri Leiker was a Special Olympics athlete, a 30-year employee of King Soopers, and one of the ten people killed in the tragic Boulder King Soopers shooting in March, 2021.
The red and white license plate quotes the motto: “Play Unified. Live Unified.” With a one-time $60 donation, participants will both support the 16,000 athletes in the program and promote Special Olympics Colorado. Learn more, or order the special license plate here.
