Special Olympics fundraising

To the editor:

Baker City has a new Special Olympic chapter as of a couple years ago and has between 10 and 30 athletes competing in various sports through the year.

Last weekend a wonderful group of people had a yard sale and gave 100 percent of their proceeds to this group. They made a substantial donation which will provide many athletes with the funds to compete statewide. We thank you so much for your generosity and kindness as we can not charge our athletes anything to compete but rather fundraise and ask for donations to make it happen for them.

If anyone would like to make a donation you may send a check to SOOR Chapter 511, 2350 Carter St., Baker City, OR 97814.
