We’re super excited to announce that Special Olympics will be back for our annual NBA Cares Unified Basketball Game at#NBAAllStar! NBA All Star Weekend is taking place in New Orleans, LA this weekend and we are thrilled to take part in the festivities!
Stay tuned for more information about our East & West teams, with players from all over the world (Including a few SOLA athletes!), as well as an announcement around our unified partners & coaches!
Will you be attending the ULTIMATE adrenaline rush while being able to raise funds needed for Special Olympics Louisiana athletes?! Today, NOLA Over the Edge: SWAT Edition is giving participants the opportunity to rappel 25 stories down NOLA’s Benson Tower, ride in a helicopter, and SWAT train with Louisiana’s finest at the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Training Facility!
Companies, schools, clubs, and other organizations will be raising funds to send their friends Over the Edge through company matching, sponsorship opportunities, and much more. Don’t want to rappel but still want to help? Donate to an edger and help them reach their goal for Special Olympics Louisiana or make a general donation for our athletes participating!
A special thanks to our sponsors for all of their help with planning today’s event! We will be at NOLA’s Benson Tower starting at 7:00 AM. We hope to see you there!
