They Say I Need Help!!!
Many have told me that I'm crazy to walk off the edge of a 16-story building. I think they are right, but there is a lot more I would do to help the Special Olympics athletes of Montgomery County .
I first became involved with Special Olympics when my son John was just 8-years old, 18 years ago! My involvement grew over time, first as the Golf Team Manager, then as the Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator for Special Olympics MD - Montgomery County (SOMO).
On June 1st, I became Area Director for SOMO, responsible for 23 sports and over 300 practice and competition events that we organize for our 600+ Montgomery County athletes each year! My husband John also became SOMO's Treasurer. You could say that SOMO has become our family business! :-)
I Do Need Help!!!
Special Olympics is always free to the athletes. Keeping it free keeps it accessible. Most athletes have few financial resources. Yet it is not free to provide and that is where you can help!
This year, BOTH John and I will go OVER THE EDGE for Special Olympics! We are competing to see whether Team John or Team Shelly can raise the most for SOMO.
John went Over the Edge last year, so he starts with the advantage of an existing Donor list. I need your help to catch up. Please help me support our athletes (and beat my husband!) by supporting Team Shelly's descent!
All proceeds from our descents will go to support the Special Olympics athletes of Montgomery County.
Use the DONATE NOW button to support Team Shelly.
If you want to go Over The Edge yourself, use the JOIN TEAM button to join Team Shelly and then solicit donations for your own descent.
Thank you for your support of our Special Olympics Athletes. I hope that many of you can join John and I and watch our descent on November 3rd!
