Special Olympics Athlete's Oath:
Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.
Thank you, Sobeys, Safeway Canada & Thrifty Foods!
While COVID-19 forced Sobeys Inc. to make the difficult decision to cancel their national in-store fundraiser for Special Olympics Canada that had been planned for 2020, their commitment to supporting our movement remains as strong as ever.
On Monday, August 10 Special Olympics Canada announced that Sobeys, Safeway, and Thrifty Foods will be honouring their original fundraising target with a $1 million donation to Special Olympics programs across Canada!
These much-needed funds will be vital to help Special Olympics BC return to sport as soon as safely possible. In these challenging times, this support is absolutely critical.
Please help us celebrate this incredible donation and all of the Sobeys, Safeway and Thrifty Foods employees who made this possible. And please consider supporting these local businesses who have helped make this incredible contribution possible.
All SOBC programs are paused until at least May 31 due to the COVID-19 emergency. In addition, all Summer Games Qualifiers will not be held. SOBC will send out more information about the Games in the fall. Please see the memo from SOBC for more information.
