Get on Your Bike for Special Olympics
Special Olympics Ireland needs to raise funds to support the existing programme in Fermanagh and other clubs all across Ireland, North and South and realise the strategy of having 16,000 athletes across Ireland recruited by the end of 2007. To raise funds SOI has launched a national campaign to run from January to April 2007 titled ‘Support an Athlete’.
We are asking people to become involved, run, and or engage in any fundraising event between now and April, when the team for China 2007 will be announced. One such event is the "Get on Your Bike for Special Olympics".
Time to dust off saddle, oil the chain and limber up for the summer.Here is a good motivator to start off the summer season as you mean to go on.
Special Olympics needs to raise funds to support and grow its network in providing competitive sport opportunity to people with special needs.
