I am plunging for the Greater Merrimack Special Needs Youth Group aka "Merrimack Friars". They provide services and assistance for members in Merrimack, Milford, Hollis, Hudson, Litchfield, and Nashua. The group participates in Special Olympics (SO) activities throughout the year as well as running a social event each month from September thru June. This group is 100% volunteer run with an annual budget of @ $8,000 which is all raised through this event or others like selling candy. It typically costs @ $3,000 to send our athletes to winter olympics and just over that for summer games and thats with us paying half of the athletes costs! The athletes still have to come up with the rest! We try to pay for as many as we can but we need your help!
On fixed incomes most of our members have to choose between food, medicine and other necessities. This group subsidizes fees associated with participating in Special Olympics enabling members to participate in Special Olympics as well as other social activites.
If you contribute I promise to go ALL IN! Just like last year, I got all wet!
