Draft an Athlete!

This morning, St. Francis School welcomed guests Warren, and Special Olympic Athlete, Nicole to their school.

Nicole had the opportunity to tell students about her skills and favourite sports to compete in, while also talking about the upcoming Special Olympics Winter Games.

This year, our amazing city is hosting the Special Olympics Winter Games (February 25-29). St. Francis, along with the rest of our schools in our Board, are raising funds to draft an athlete!

- What’s Draft an Athlete? -

Draft an Athlete is a program that allows supporters of the movement to fund a Special Olympics athlete’s journey to a regional, provincial, national or world competition. The cost of sending athletes to competitions is high. Through the Draft an Athlete program, more athletes are able to attend a competition through direct support.

Thank you Warren and Nicole for visiting, taking the time to let these lions know some more information about the Special Olympics and the Draft and Athlete Campaign!
