Special Olympics/Support An Athlete Campaign Begins

More than 7,000 athletes are coming to Los Angeles from 177 countries, and they need your support. It costs $2500 to cover each athlete's food, lodging, medical support and transportation. 

For each $2500 raised by an individual or a team, they will be matched with an athlete. That means, they will be sent a photo, stats, and competition schedule for the athlete. We hope the fundraisers will then come out to cheer their athlete (and all of our athletes) on! 

Attached is a “Support An Athlete Toolkit” which will provide information regarding how to start a fundraising page, and some fundraising ideas as well.
