This season supporting local businesses can put an extra spring in the step of Special Olympics Hawai‘i athletes. A number of companies have stepped up to the plate to raise funds and help get our athletes to the State Summer Games this May. They include:
Big City Diner (Kaimuki, Kailua, Ward, Waipio and Pearlridge): April 1-30
Teddy’s Bigger Burger (Kapiolani, Wahiawa): April 1 – 30
IHOP (Pearl City, Ohana Waikiki Malia Hotel, Aqua Palms Waikiki Hotel, Hilo): April 1 – May 31
When you visit any of these companies during their designated dates, please consider making a donation to Special Olympics Hawai‘i. One hundred percent of your gift will go towards hosting the State Summer Games this May. The annual event will bring together more than 1,000 athletes and coaches from around the state to compete in an Olympic-style competition.
Athletes will participate in powerlifting, softball, track and field and swimming, as well as other activities including a Young Athlete Program, Healthy Athlete Village and Olympic Town. This event – including transportation and housing – is provided at no cost to our athletes and their families.
Whether it’s grabbing a cup of your favorite frozen yogurt or deciding where to go for breakfast this weekend, we hope you’ll consider supporting the businesses that give back to our local athletes. Mahalo!

Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the First Hawaiian Bank Troy Barboza Law Enforcement Torch Run!
30 years ago, our local law enforcement officers went above and beyond the call of duty to bring people with intellectual disabilities out of the shadows in their community. By lighting the way with the Flame of Hope, these volunteers have paved the way for respect and inclusion for our athletes. The officers of the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics will take their years and miles of experience to the streets of Waikiki on May 29, 2015 uniting their communities together as they keep the Flame of Hope burning for all the athletes involved in Special Olympics Hawai'i. Click for more information about the Torch Run.
