A little history…
Six years ago, Special Olympics Edmonton (SOE) met a man named Sliver (Sliv). His dream was to host a fundraiser that would raise money for a charity that was dedicated to sport. In 2013, SOE was the charity of choice. In that year, not only did he raise $40,000 but he also built a strong bond with our athletes and organization. This event continued each year for the next four years. In that time, he raised over $100,000 for Special Olympics. He also went on to start our powerlifting program and train many of our National athletes. Unfortunately, Sliv’s job has him travelling all over the world and he was no longer able to coach or host the fundraiser for us. We missed him. We decided that in addition to keeping the fundraisers spirit alive and to raise funds for athletes we wanted to honor Sliv for all that he has done, and continues to do for our organization. This year, we are BRINGING THE FUNDRAISER BACK in its full and original glory.
This one’s for you, Sliv. Thank you.
