"As we continue to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Special Olympics, we would like to thank all the players and the teams for their continued and enthusiastic support. It is our hope that the much needed funds will be raised this season - $50,000 for 50 years! There’s nothing better than athletes supporting athletes." he added.
