Serving Our People and Community Highlight / August 14, 2019

On Sunday, Aug. 11, BrightSpring Health Services was proud to host a “Special Olympics of Kentucky (SOKY) Day” at a Louisville City FC soccer game. The SOKY athletes from the Wizards soccer team were able to attend the game, receive a Louisville City goodie bag and go onto the field at halftime with a video and PA announcement!

BrightSpring is honored to partner with Louisville City FC and help give each of the athletes in attendance an unforgettable experience. Despite the extreme heat, everyone had a great time!
