It’s amazing what $30 can do — when you give $30, Special Olympics can get a basketball into the hands of an athlete. And $100? That’ll get a whole team on the court!
“Together we can bring more joy, give more confidence, and instill more leadership by putting basketballs in the hands of our athletes,” stated Special Olympics.
Hundreds of people have stepped up locally to help Special Olympics reach their goal of getting 1,000 basketballs in the hands of athletes.
“Here’s where we need your help: We still have 328 basketballs to go. What could be better than giving a Special Olympics athlete their first-ever basketball?”
Special Olympics is nearing their 50th anniversary — that’s half a century of helping athletes find joy and discover confidence through the life-changing power of sport.
When your basketball goes from your hometown to an athlete in need, it starts a cycle of change that improves their life forever.
