Special Olympics Team USA is fortunate to receive support from sponsors and suppliers, so thank you.
As part of its multi-year, multi-million dollar commitment to Special Olympics, leading athletic retailer Finish Line and its Finish Line Youth Foundation are proud to announce a $250,000 gift to Special Olympics Team USA. Finish Line’s gift will help offset costs for Special Olympics Team USA athletes to participate in the 2013 World Winter Games in the Republic of Korea.
“Every athlete wants to achieve his or her best, however that is personally defined,” said Marty Posch, Executive Director of the Finish Line Youth Foundation. “Finish Line is thrilled to show our support for US athletes who have earned the opportunity to compete on the world stage.”
Two lucky Finish Line employees and their guests will cheer on Special Olympics Team USA in person next January. Employees who participate in successful local fundraising efforts to benefit the Special Olympics partnership will be eligible to win a trip to the World Winter Games and see the incredible impact of their donations at work.
Thank you Finish Line!
