The Pigskin Pass Benefiting Special Olympics Delaware and Maryland

Each year there are over 360,000 student-athletes who are given the opportunity to compete in the NCAA athletic programs. Student-athletes, like us, are given a chance to achieve personal and athletic success through our participation. Having these experiences changes our lives and gives us the confidence to succeed.

Special Olympics provides the same opportunity for athletes with intellectual disabilities; embodying and encouraging them through the spirit of athletics. In an effort to increase awareness and raise funds for these extraordinary individuals, the Student Athlete Advisory Councils from Towson University and the University of Delaware will host the Third Annual Pigskin Pass. Information for the 2008 event coming soon.

Help support Special Olympics Programs by making a contribution that will help off-set the cost to the participants in the 16 different sports as well as provide experiences that will positively change their lives. Contributions, of any size, will make a difference, and can easily be made online at http://www.pigskinpass.com/ or by mail.

Thank you in advance for your consideration of making a contribution toward this worthy cause. As student-athletes we have a unique opportunity to accomplish goals both in the classroom and on the playing field. Your support will encourage Special Olympic athletes to reach their goals and achieve success through these inspiring programs.
