Mahalo to our loyal customers, staff and community members! $45,000 was raised for Special Olympics Hawai‘i during our fundraising campaign in May and June. Funds were collected through the purchase of a special Star Edition Kokua Pac and Special Olympics Hawai’i cutouts, along with donations canisters at all Zippy’s locations. Proceeds have benefited Special Olympics Hawai’i to help provide more than 4,000 local participants from across the state the opportunity to compete in Special Olympics at no cost to themselves and their families
Special Olympics Hawai‘i provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
