19 May Unified Relay California Capsules
Friends & Family,
I need your support, but more importantly, Special Olympics needs your help. I have registered a team for the Unified Relay Across America, a once in a lifetime experience that will deliver the Flame of Hope from Athens, Greece to Los Angeles for the 2015 World Summer Games.
Special Olympics works every day towards changing the world through sport to create respectful and inclusive communities and the Flame of Hope acts as the beacon to unite communities in acceptance.
We can make a difference as over 20,000 movement supporters will be carrying the Flame along three simultaneous routes, traveling from east to west coast from May 26th through July 10th, 2015. The journey of the Flame will be the grand lead-in to the Special Olympics World Summer Games, being held in Los Angeles during July and August. These events will showcase a movement that is breaking down barriers and lighting the way to a future of respect and inclusion.
People with intellectual disabilities continue to be one of the most marginalized and discriminated against populations in the world. We need people to take a stand (well, in this case, a walk/jog/run/roll) and unite the country behind acceptance and respect for all!
So follow this http://uraa.donordrive.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&participantID=4442. Any size donation is much appreciated and will support those with intellectual disabilities.
Thank you for supporting the movement!
