We have raised just over $1,300 through Global Giving for our 12 for 12 campaign! Can you help us reach our goal of $2,000 by June 1st?
We just need 5 people to commit to donating $12 a month for 12 months in order to reach that goal. Also, by donating just $12 a month you'll be paying for an athlete to participate in Special Olympics Oregon and get Training for Life. Training for life means that athletes are making new friends, learning new skills, and competing every day, every month, every year.
Please help us reach our goal by clicking the link below. THANKS

Winter State Games Snow Sports are held annually at Mt. Bachelor where participants from the entire state compete in one of four sports – alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing.

We are well on our way to reach our goal, but need you help to get us there! Jeff, a Police Officer who volunteers for Special Olympics Oregon said, "The athletes do more for me than I do for the athletes". Please help Jeff and our many other volunteers reach the thousands of people with intelectual disabilities by donating $12 a month for 12 months. This will allow individuals participating in Special Olympics Oregon to compete for a whole sports season!
Go to http://www.soor.org/Sub-Page.aspx?Name=12-FOR-12-IN-2012&PID=134 and click on any of the videos to learn more about the athletes, families, and volunteers and how $12 a month provides "Training for Life."
Special Olympics Oregon offers training and competition opportunities in 14 different Olympic-style sports. There are three sports seasons throughout the year, with statewide competitions and training in winter, summer and fall. Your $12 for 12 months donation will help athletes around the state participate in all of these fun-filled events!
Thank you for your support of Special Olympics Oregon! We are on our way to meeting our 12 for 12 goal and every donation helps our participants in Training for Life!
