(KSL News) -- The President of Special Olympics Utah has a question he wants answered.

JD Donnelly, President & CEO, Special Olympics of Utah: "Who would take something this valuable from a special olympics program, out of a vehicle that has a logo on it?"

Police are looking for answers too. Someone stole a $300 portable Bocce Court while the vehicle was parked at the University of Utah last night. The game, similar to lawn bowling, was headed to St. George.

Bocce is one of the fastest-growing Special Olympic sports and 250 athletes statewide take part in it.

Donnelly says $300 is enough to send three Special Olympians to a state competition and pay for their two nights in a hotel, seven meals, and three days of competition and entertainment.
