On February 5, 2010 the state leadership of the Knights of Columbus and Special Olympics announced an agreement to make the Knights of Columbus a major sponsor of Summer Games – Indiana’s largest Special Olympics event. One hundred percent of funds donated by the Knights of Columbus are used to make it possible for over 2,500 Special Olympics Athletes to attend Summer Games each year.
The impact of Knights of Columbus’ support is expected to increase the number of athletes with intellectual disabilities able to attend Summer Games and allow local Special Olympics groups to spend more funds on such things as better uniforms, facilities for training, and transportation.
Other ways for the members of the Knights of Columbus to donate include: the Polar Plunge, Plane Pull and other Special Olympics Indiana fundraisers.
Donations are most easily tracked if sent to the Special Olympics Indiana State Headquarters:
6200 Technology Center Drive
Indianapolis, IN 46278
100% of all K of C donations benefit local Special Olympics programs
