Support Leduc Special Olympics July 11

If you’re hungry to help the Leduc Special Olympics, or just plain hungry, then you’ll want to head to the group’s charity BBQ.

If you’re hungry to help the Leduc Special Olympics, or just plain hungry, then you’ll want to head to the group’s charity BBQ Saturday, July 11.

Space for the BBQ has been graciously donated by Car West Leduc Autosales and the charity event will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In addition, Car West Leduc Autosales has pledged to donate $200 from every car sold that day to Leduc Special Olympics. Also, Leduc Special Olympics volunteers will have a donation box on-site for anyone who’d like to support the group even more.

Funds raised through events like the charity BBQ support special Olympians by paying for athletes to attend tournaments, special holiday parties and special equipment.

Special Olympics is not funded by any group or agency; parents, families and volunteers must raise the money themselves. The group does a lot of fundraising all year, and Leduc Special Olympics has a very dedicated group of volunteers.

Leduc Special Olympics is celebrating its 25th anniversary. It boasts membership of about 60 athletes of all ages and a wide variety of sports and activities.

Car West Leduc Autosales is located at 6508 Sparrow Drive, just north of the McDonald’s.
