Thanks for visiting my Special Olympics Fundraising page! My support of Special Olympics started in October 2007 after participating in a 10 week internship with Special Olympics Australia in Sydney. Those 10 weeks showed me how Special Olympics transforms communities by inspiring people to open their minds, to accept and include people with intellectual disabilities, and celebrating differences among all people . . . recognizing and respecting the similarities we all share.
So you are probably asking yourself, Why would I step off the ledge of one of the tallest buildings in Des Moines, especially when I'm not a big fan of heights? Why repel from 27 stories, 345' high? Why am I asking for your support? Because I want to help the Special Olympics continue the great program that serves 11,000 athletes in Iowa!
For any of you who have tried to raise money for a cause understand that raising $1,000 is not an easy task. Any donation would be greatly appreciated in helping me reach my goal! That is why donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
I want to say thank you in advance for your donation not only from me, but also from the people you will directly impact with donating to Special Olympics. Also, if there is anyone you think that might want to make a donation feel free to forward this on!
