“Dear Friends of Special Olympics Georgia,
Thank you so much for your support of and participation in Special Olympics Georgia’s 12th Annual Duck Pluck this year. Your donations helped us successfully raise funds to provide meals, housing and medals for our athletes at our five annual State Games.
For many of our athletes, Special Olympics Georgia is the only consistent opportunity they have to develop physical fitness, improve their overall health, receive basic healthcare services, learn independent living skills, gain skills for employment and form social relationships. Skills learned in our programs facilitate success at school, work and in independent living situations. As a result, Special Olympics Georgia athletes become fulfilled and productive members of their families and the communities in which they live.
Through the power of sport, we are able to create a better world by fostering acceptance and inclusion of all people. In the moments of the Special Olympics experience, the athlete changes from a person of perceived diminished value to a champion. And in these moments of transformation, everyone else is changed too. We are more open, joyful, tolerant and accepting. Ultimately, these are the traits that create a better world for us all.
On behalf of our athletes, thank you again for your support. We are forever grateful for your generosity.”
