We currently have 2 ways people can help with our Families of Special Olympics Bowling Team Travel Fund. We are selling T-shirts online at Booster.com/MaconPinCrushers They are nice Hanes Tagless T-shirts in a Dark Gray with a Custom Limited Edition Design just for this fundraiser. People can also make money donations online at GoFundMe.com/MaconPinCrushers .
We have 10 kids on the Team that won Gold or Silver at districts to advance to the State Tournament March 27-29 in Ft. Leonard Wood, MO. We also have 3 that won Bronze and they have a chance to go if there is any drop out opening up spots.
Most of these families go through struggles that most won’t ever have to. With the State Tournament being moved from Columbia this year only a very few families will be able to travel to the tournament with the kids do to the financial stress of hotel for 3 night, meals, and transportation. Although to some these expenses might not seem like much but these expenses can be the difference in a family getting to be with there child as they compete at the State Special Olympics Bowling Tournament.
To these kids this Tournament is like there Super Bowl. They work very hard for this achievement and it’s important to them to have there families there to support and cheer them on. We have found over the years that the kids perform much better when they have there families there. This very special and amazing group of kids deserve to have there families there to support them and cheer them on to a Gold.
Help us make this happen and get these families to the tournament. You really can’t imagine what this would mean to these kids.
