Whether you are training for an athletic event, celebrating a milestone, or simply would like to help, we’ll provide you with support along the way. Here is how you can create your own successful fundraising campaign in support of Special Olympics:
First set up your fundraising page. Decide how you would like to raise funds for Special Olympics:
Take a few minutes to personalize your personal or team page: set your fundraising goal, add a personal story or a few words about why you support Special Olympics, add a photo or a video to your page.
Start reaching out to friends, family and community: send emails, post on Facebook, use Twitter. We encourage you stay in regular contact with friends, encouraging their support and thank them for their contributions and updating them about your progress.
Special Olympics helps people with intellectual disabilities overcome barriers through sports. Every day we empower our athletes to shatter stereotypes and exceed their personal bests on the playing field and in life. Your efforts will help us give one more person with intellectual disabilities a chance to participate in Special Olympics sports and feel like a champion. Thank you for making a difference!
