His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama has officially accepted an invitation
to attend the opening ceremonies of the 2009 Special Olympics in Boise
in February 2009. He will then travel to Sun Valley where he will visit
personally with the athletes at the Wood River Community YMCA, which
will be known as Olympic Town.

"He wants to honor the athletes and their families," co-founder of the
2009 World Winter Games Pirie Grossman said.

To date, there are no plans for him to have a public conference of any
kind.

Events are scheduled to take place in the Boise area, the McCall area
and in Sun Valley.
