This Year's Project: Storage for Sports Equipment


About Our Organization

Let me win, But if I can not win, Let me be brave in the attempt.

Beatrice Special Olympics provides year round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities and their unified partners, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in the sharing of gives, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympic Athletes and the community. 



Current Project: Storage for Sports Equipment



Beatrice Special Olympics is in need of a utility shed to store a variety of sports equipment. As a highly successful program, we have been able to add a new sport every 2 years, giving our athletes a chance to play a variety of different sporting games, yet requiring more equipment to store each year.

A storage shed to store sporting equipment during the off season of the different sports would be a great benefit. The shed we choose will include keypad entry, allowing all local coaches access to the shed at their convenience. The shed will be organized based on sport, include a designated area for equipment to be checked in and out, and allow us to truly assess the items that may need to be repaired or replaced.

We plan on shopping locally for this shed, supporting our community in the same way that they always support our local Special Olympics athletes.

    Our Goal for the Big Give Gage is $3,000. 

     

    This will help us purchase much-needed new equipment for our athletes. Our current equipment has been used for the past 6 years & we could use an upgrade due to our rapid growth. 

    We would also like to offer more sports opportunities for our athletes. Donating to our Specail Olympics team would make that happen! We appreciate the continued support of our community.

    Thank you!
