Since the founding of Special Olympics 50 years ago The Knights of Columbus has had a unique partnership with the Special Olympics and has helped disabled athletes train for and compete in games around the world.  Knights of Columbus councils have assisted with all aspects of the program from fundraising to feeding the athletes, organizing and judging events, and providing equipment and awards.  Without the support of the Knights, participants would not be able to train for the events that they love.

80 percent of the plunge donations come in during the last two weeks so if you act now you will easily make your goal.
