Sports facilities honored for aiding Special Olympics

Two sports facilities, Quest Fitness and Timbers at Troy Golf Course, were honored at the Special Olympics Maryland Leadership Awards Banquet for their contribution to Special Olympics Howard County sports training programs.

Quest Fitness Center received the "Training For Life" award for providing year-round facility use free of charge, a $7,000-per- year donation. Special Olympics athletes train alongside other members of the club, some of whom have volunteered to be coaches.

Timbers at Troy Golf Course won the Buddy Jenkins Memorial Award for providing more than $10,000 worth of in-kind donations each year for the past six years in the form of unlimited use of the course in the spring and fall. Special Olympics athletes train on the driving range and putting greens and play the course each Thursday evening. Having access to the facilities has enabled the organization's golf program to grow from eight athletes in 1997 to 35 athletes this year.

Holiday Inn Columbia, 7900 Washington Blvd., Columbia, was recently honored with the Quality Excellence Award, which recognizes outstanding guest service and business performance.

It is the 15th time that the hotel has received the award, which was announced at the Intercontinental Hotels Group conference in Atlanta.
