Fundraiser for Special Olympics Florida

To celebrate its 50th anniversary, Special Olympics Florida aims to raise $500,000 through a state campaign. But in South Florida, we have an opportunity to support them through the Miami Race for Inclusion, which will take place tomorrow, Thursday, at Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami.

Special Olympics says it is very close to its goal of raising $500,000, which is used to support athletes like Sabrina, the young Miami woman who won gold and bronze in gymnastics.

Sabrina is a 25-year-old gymnastics champion who has won multiple medals: three golds representing Florida at the United States Special Olympics.

Vijay has put in over 8 years of effort training for competitions and has trained up to 12 hours a week since the age of 17.

Training may take longer for people with special needs, but the results are the same as they are for athletes.

Sabrina has Down syndrome, but her mother insists that her condition is not a deterrent. She and her family found support in developing her skills at Special Olympics.

Special Olympics Florida Services benefits approximately 60,000 athletes each year at no cost, through the true spirit of sportsmanship, healthy competition, and inclusion that empowers the lives of people with disabilities.

For many athletes, the Special Olympics is the only resource they have. Sports is their outlet to feel connected to the community and to show what they can do and they are no different.

The Race for Inclusion is tomorrow at 5PM, we can help by donating and participating too. They can log into the Special Olympics website.
