This is one last call for your support to help me reach my goal for the charity "Ride for Respect" Special Olympics-MT fundraiser. Since my last email I've collected or have pledges to meet half of my goal. As you view my page, you can see some great people really stepped up! Thank you for your generosity. I'm not asking for large amounts, something small from a lot of you will allow me to help those special people find dignity, pride and respect as detailed in my story below.
Please help me with what you can.
Special Olympics Montana offers training and competitive events for special athletes who don't enjoy life as you and I know it can be enjoyed. I am excited to tell you about and ask your help with a new event that I am involved in to support these special athletes.
On August 22, 2012 I will be joining members of our Special Olympics Montana Staff and friends of the organization for the Montana Law Enforcement Torch Run Ride For Respect - A two day 600 mile motorcycle ride that starts in Billings and ends in Billings the following day.
My goal is to find supporters willing to donate $100, $50 or less so I can raise $3,000 for the benefit of 2,000 Special Olympics Montana athletes.
I am honored to be part of this great organization. The benefits are:
· To support children & adults with intellectual disabilities.
· Dignity, respect, inclusion, self esteem, self confidence, joy of life, increased physical activity, improved health.
· For the athletes, their families, relatives and communities.
· Currently serving over 2,000 individuals, utilizing over 4,000 volunteers in Montana.
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
If you are reluctant to donate online, simply mail your donation payable to “Special Olympics Montana” or a pledge to donate to the address below with attention to me.
Thank you, in advance, for considering this invitation to be a fan of dignity, courage, joy and generosity...and thanks for supporting the Ride For Respect fundraiser!
