48 hours left to 2013

Time is running out to make your 2013 tax-deductible gift to Special Olympics Louisiana. And with less than 48 hours to go, the stakes just got higher.

We’ve written you about the exciting challenge issued by our partner Finish Line – through midnight tomorrow, they will match your donation, dollar for dollar, up to a campaign total of $250,000.

Every dollar we raise matters. Additional support means more trainings and competitions, more joy and confidence, and more athletes in the swimming lanes, on the soccer fields, and on the running tracks. Please help us stretch a little further to meet this challenge head on.

Thank You, Sponsors
