Special Olympics of Pasco is a sports and training program for people with intellectual disabilities. In Pasco, year-round training in 17 different sports are provided free of charge to participants. This was the first time Special Olympics of Pasco was spotlighted at the Pasco County Tax Collector’s Office.
“We are so thankful to the entire Pasco County community,” comments Val Lundin, Director of Special Olympics of Pasco County. “It is so uplifting to see how the community embraced our program and gave so generously. With their kind donations, our athletes will continue to have the opportunity to participate and demonstrate their strengths and abilities. Pasco strong!”
