We would like to thank Rex Bohn along with Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC) for their very generous donation and support to Special Olympics’ local sports programs. Special Olympics of Northern California Humboldt County is a year-round sports program for adults and children with intellectual disabilities.

Special Olympics is funded entirely by private donations, staffed locally by volunteers, and receives no direct government funding. There are no fees charged to our athletes, a donation like this ensures that we can continue to enhance the experience and opportunities for our athletes.

Over 200 local athletes participating in a variety of sports will benefit from this donation. Funds will be put towards our annual budget which is spent on travel and accommodations for our athletes, field and pool rental for practices, as well as uniforms and basic equipment. Thank you to Rex and RCRC for helping to make it possible.

Robert Buckman, area director; Rhea Varley, area treasurer
