Good afternoon. We have received information from our partners at Special Olympics Indiana that they have qualified in the top Special Olympics organizations nationwide to receive grant money that could total up to $125,000.00. The LIDS Foundation is providing this grant and the winner will be based entirely upon support voting on their webpage.
The majority of this money is returned to IHSAA member schools in the form of Unified Track and Field grants, school assemblies and t-shirt giveaways promoting inclusion and awareness. Please find below the link where you can cast your vote for Special Olympics Indiana. It also my understanding that you may vote daily from each and any of your devices – smartphone, tablets or computers. I heartily encourage you to cast your support behind Special Olympics Indiana and vote early and often! Finally, please forward this to your coaching staffs, booster and support groups, your special education communities and all those that support the inclusion revolution.
On the “Tip of the Hat” website link below, you will see the five organizations competing for the top prizes. Be sure to cast your vote for Special Olympics Indiana in the box below the charities listed. Your support of Special Olympics Indiana, the IHSAA and our Champions Together initiative is greatly appreciated.
