The Special Olympics canceled most of it’s event due to COVID-19 and are now in need of donations.
Some of the athletes are considered high risk at this time, the non-profit is hoping for support in a safe socially distance way.
The “Sign Up” campaign is a branded yard sign sale event that has raised millions of dollars for special Olympics in years past.
The funds raised help offset expenses for things like uniforms, meals, equipment and future competitions. Competitions family members say are very missed this year.
Local law enforcement officers say they’ve missed the competition just as much as the athletes do. Especially since this year’s law enforcement torch run was canceled.
They say the “Sign Up” campaign is an easy way to show their support.
You can buy a yard sign for $25 to support Special Olympics.
