NP Special Olympics Host Bake Sale

special-olympicsA bake sale this weekend will benefit an amazing group of athletes.

The North Platte Special Olympics is hosting a bake sale this Saturday, May 11, at Gary’s Superfoods.  The group is made up of about 35 athletes who participate throughout the year in Bowling, Basketball, Swimming, Track and Field and Bocce Ball.

On May 22, the athletes will be traveling to Omaha for the Annual State Games which will involve 17 local athletes.  Events will take place from Thursday, May 23 through Saturday, May 25.

Because the athletes have special needs, they rely on others for support and transportation.  Also, many of the athletes have very limited budgets.

The athletes are responsible for raising all of their funding.

They will also accept any donation of merchandise, which could be used as raffle items, or cash donations to help with costs.

All proceeds from this weekend’s bake sale will benefit the North Platte Special Olympics.
