Please support my fundraising efforts as I escort the Special Olympics Torch, "The Flame of Hope" on its journey to the 2021 Special Olympics Northern California Summer Games being held virtually. San Jose Police will be carrying the Torch Thursday, June 17, 2021 through our community.
The funds I and other Law Enforcement personnel will raise will go a long way to ensure that Special Olympics can continue to enrich the lives of children and adults with intellectual "diffabilities". The training provided to athletes is free to the athlete and their family.
Special Olympics was heavily impacted just like many other organizations and businesses in 2020 due to the pandemic. The program lost over 3 million dollars in state funding alone. The program has done an amazing job despite all the pitfalls of keeping the athletes engaged, active and inspired by continuing virtual training and programs.
Please consider making a donation to this very valuable cause that provides much needed support to some of our most vulnerable community members.
Every dollar counts and whatever you can give will be very much appreciated.
