This event will support the Special Olympics of Porter County National Teams. This year, Porter County young people are realizing a joy beyond their dreams, and our Special Olympics program has much to be proud of and thankful for. In July 2010, National Games will be held at the University of Nebraska where outstanding athletes of every ability level from every state will compete. We are praying and hoping you can reach our goal of $30,000 to send these wonderful and amazing athletes to the National Games.
