pecial Olympics Canada and Safeway have launched a fundraising and awareness building campaign today to support the world-class Special Olympics programs in communities across the country.
Special Olympics Canada is partnering with Safeway stores in Western Canada from March 7-21, 2014, with the hope of bringing greater awareness about Special Olympics and generating financial support for their programs. Special Olympics enriches the lives of individuals with intellectual disabilities daily through the transformative power and joy of sport. Safeway customers will be invited to make a donation of $2.00 at any Safeway store and in return receive 5 AIRMILES Reward Miles. Last year, $419,595 was raised across the country during the spring campaign which helped support Special Olympics programs throughout Canada.
