Casey’s General Stores throughout Iowa will help raise funds for Special Olympics Iowa during the month of June with the Casey’s promotion. Stores, in partnership with Coca-Cola, will sell $1 pin-ups, with proceeds being donated to Special Olympics Iowa. Special Olympics athletes and law enforcement volunteers will also be featured on the 44 oz. fountain drink cups throughout the month in stores.
Over 14,900 athletes in Iowa will benefit from this fundraiser.
Casey’s values are rooted in a sense of belonging to the communities in which it operates, which aligns with Special Olympics’ vision of inclusion for all athletes. Together throughout Iowa, the Casey’s Promotion raises awareness about different abilities and helps foster growth for our programs.
This year, both Special Olympics and Casey’s are celebrating their 50th anniversaries. Since 1968, Special Olympics has been changing attitudes about the talents of people with intellectual disabilities. For the year-long anniversary, Special Olympics Iowa is celebrating 50 years of joy, courage and empowerment.
