Kiwanis Special Games
The Kiwanis Special Games is an annual event held at De Anza College. The Special Games were created to address the physical and emotional needs of the substantial number of very challenged children in the schools of our region. More broadly known programs like the Special Olympics presume a rather high level of function. The Special Games exclude no one. This is the one day in the year when these youngsters are special, they are athletes, and at the center of attention through positive achievement. For many of these kids, the Special Games is their favorite day of the year. The event hosts over 900 athletes from nearly 60 schools. Kiwanis Club of De Anza manages the event equipment and arranges the venue.

The event is held every Good Friday at the Saratoga
