ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- Special Olympics New Mexico has decided to cancel the state Summer Games this year due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

"The thing is we know we have to uphold social distance, but we want to make sure our athletes aren't socially isolated," said executive director Randy Mascorella. "We are developing ways to stay in touch and give them things to do."

The organization will continue to hold online fundraising campaigns.
