We are fundraising for Special Olympics Southern California!
Support our journey at http://fundraising.sosc.org/site/TR/Events/General?team_id=3284&pg=team&fr_id=1540
As test your strength and endurance at the Plane Pull, you will raise
funds and awareness for Special Olympics athletes. Every dollar raised
by Special Olympics Southern California enriches the lives of athletes
with intellectual disabilities and their communities through sports,
education, and athlete health. Learn more about Special Olympics
As you all know, Special Olympics Southern California is one of our preferred charities and a Supreme featured program. This year, we want to make a big effort to have 10 full Knights of Columbus teams participate in the Plane Pull fundraiser. With these 10 full teams, we hope to reach $15,000 in fundraising that will help people with intellectual disabilities compete in sports. We encourage you all to either start your own team or to join an existing KofC team.
It’s a real fun event to participate in and the competiveness of who has the fastest team to pull the big FedEx plane is real. Last year Dr. Ray’s team, which I was part of, had the distinction of raising the most funds and having the plane the longest period of time (not the same as the fastest team).
Last year we had been on Dr. Rays’s team I believe and we were only a handful of us . This year I would love to see our team raise some money for this event and I will speak to Brother Jim in how to do so. There was a lot of confusion last year but this year if we cant raise enough, it doesn’t mean we still can’t participate.
Please Brothers let represent our ministry by bringing in family and friends on the team. You can register on the team page and also donate as well. Please contact myself or Brother Jim James Larson for more information. Meeting place will be added in a few weeks to come. Thanks and God bless you all.
