Special Olympics New Hampshire needs your support now more than ever. We are sending “Pick-Me-Up Training Packs” to all Special Olympics athletes in New Hampshire and we need your help.
In this time of uncertainty, we had to make the tough decision to cancel all of our activities including practices, competitions, celebrations and fundraisers until mid-June.
As a result of our cancellations, our athletes are feeling very isolated-no school, no work, no Special Olympics. Less than 15% of our 3,000 athletes connect with us on social media and some don't use e-mail. Our staff and volunteers are calling each athlete (and their parent or guardian) to check-in, update contact information and confirm t-shirt size. As we finish our calls, we are sending a Training Pack (t-shirt and 12 week training plan) to each athlete. The training pack allows our athletes an opportunity to follow the training plan (based on age and fitness level) – keeping more active and preparing for our next competition. We will send out 3,000 shirts!
We are hoping to raise $90,000 to cover costs associated with sending a “Pick-Me-Up Pack Training Pack” to each athlete. Each training pack is valued at $29.76 and will contain a training guide, t-shirt and note from the donor.
If you choose to donate, please include the donor note that you would like included in your “Pick-Me-Up Pack” as the comment with your donation.
Thank you in advance for your support. It will truly make a difference in the lives of our athletes!
