UCO Endeavor Games

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Olympic athletes are great and all, but we think overcoming a physical disability and then competing in a sport is much more impressive. The University of Central Oklahoma Endeavor Games kick off with a swimming competition 5:30 p.m. Friday at Mitch Park YMCA, 2901 Marilyn Williams Drive, in Edmond. In all, 11 sports will be featured through the entirety of the games, which runs through Sunday at various venues in Edmond. Admission is free. For more information or to volunteer, visit
