Some Special Olympics athletes need help.

Airport High School and S.C. Special Olympics are partnering to send Airport’s United Bowling Team to Las Vegas, for a tournament Feb. 13-17.

“United Sports combine the amazing talents of our students who have intellectual disabilities with their wonderful non-disabled peers,” said Karen Kish, Airport High School’s Special Olympics coach.
Kish said the effort is to promote positive inclusion and create meaningful relationships through sports for the participants.

“We are very blessed to have four talented athletes, and four truly compassionate unified partners who will be attending this tournament, along with three coaches,” said Kish. She said the adventure will cost a a few thousand dollars. “And we are hoping to raise as much of the funds as possible.”

She said South Carolina Special Olympics is a non-profit and donations or sponsorships can be written off for tax purposes. The Employer Identification number is 57-0680248. The on-line link to donate at First Giving is at: Donate to Airport’s Special Olympics Bowling Team
Checks can also be made out to Airport High School

“If you or your business is willing to donate or sponsor out group, we would greatly appreciate any help towards this adventure,” said Kish.
