Surprise Visit From St. Francis of Assisi Students!

Last week at the Special Olympics Northern California offices, we had a lovely visit from a pair of students at St. Francis of Assisi School in nearby Concord, Calif., here in the Bay Area.

Two students – Dani & Toni – dropped off a donation check for $500!

The students at St. Francis organized a fundraiser where students – who normally don red and blue school uniforms – could purchase a free dress day for $2. In other words, a quick $2 donation to Special Olympics and the students didn’t have to wear the uniform on the free dress day.

What a great idea for a simple fundraiser benefitting our athletes and a wonderful way to promote awareness of Special Olympics! Thank you to Dani, Toni and St. Francis of Assisi School!
