When Brady was born, even before, I knew he was going to be different than my other boys. Everything about the pregnancy, birth and subsequent months showed me this. Just before he turned three he finally got the autism diagnosis (amongst a host of other things).
When he was 5 we started him in a program with the Special Olympics of Colorado called the Young Athletes. This was a fun, parent and volunteer led set of afternoons where Brady could learn special skills like kicking, hopping on one foot, balancing and more amongst peers with and without special needs.
Through this program he has gone on to participate in fun events with the Denver Broncos and Colorado Rockies, all while making some great friends. Now that he has aged out of the Young Athletes program, we are looking to enroll him in some of the amazing and fun things they have to offer for older kids.
I was thrilled to hear that SUBWAY® Restaurants have partnered with Special Olympics Colorado in their You Share, We Share campaign.
SUBWAY® Restaurants located in USA & Canada are joining forces with several charities to give back to the local community. From now through August 31st, more than 7,800 local SUBWAY® Restaurants are participating in the “You Share. We Share.” campaign to help support different charities.
The “You Share. We Share” campaign encourages the community to get out and share their weekends with SUBWAY®, and SUBWAY® Restaurants in the Denver, Colorado Springs, and Grand Junction areas will share right back by donating a percentage of weekend sales, up to $65,000, directly to Special Olympic Colorado. As locally owned and operated franchises, SUBWAY® is excited to be able to further its commitment to the local community.
As a big fan of SUBWAY® Restaurants already, my boys and I are excited to know that all those meatball subs we order are actually benefiting a charity we hold near and dear to our heart. Special Olympics Colorado has already helped our own family in so many ways, it’s amazing to be able to give back to them as well.
