Gold medals that is! As part of their “Support the Home Team” campaign, Wawa stores across the east coast are collecting your spare change to help send Special Olympics athletes to the 2014 USA National Games in New Jersey. Special Olympics Pennsylvania is scheduled to send more than 230 athletes to the games, 24 of whom represent the Philadelphia program. Through August 11th you can help Wawa turn your change to gold by asking an associate to scan a $1, $3, or $5 donation to Special Olympics Pennsylvania’s USA National Games team.
On June 14, 2013 at the Penn State Conference Center Hotel in State College, the first round of athletes were selected to represent Team Pennsylvania in the 2014 Special Olympics USA National Games. Special Olympics Philadelphia is proud to report that four individual athletes and two basketball teams will be representing Team Pennsylvania at the National Games with another two individual athletes being selected as alternates.
