Lisa Bell, Neabsco School Board representative and well known BMX racer is part of the Area 23 Team helping to raise funds for Special Olympics.
Many fundraisers use a disproportionate amount for overhead and expenses. We're proud to share this information:
From Special Olympicsof Virginia:
Thanks for reaching out! I am glad you asked me that because I am SO proud of where all of SOVA’s money goes to. $.86 on every dollar raised goes directly to programs that support our athletes, $.11 on every dollar raised goes to fundraising expenses and only $.03 goes to general admin expenses. Very few charities in this world can boast these awesome numbers!
I hope this makes you feel better! Last year, because of all of the money we raised at the plunge we were able to send 333 athletes to summer games!
This is a lot of fun. Costume contest and plenty of prizes.
