Special Olympics Walkathon


The second annual Special Olympics Walkathon at Ascension Church was deemed a success with a goal of raising $3,000 this year for Special Olympics Florida – Lee County. Sponsored by the Knights of Columbus, the effort brought out a number of Special Olympians, some of whom ran the quarter mile track, plus K of C members and supportive community members.

Participants walked as many laps as they wanted, then enjoyed lunch in the Parish Hall. Planning for the 3rd annual Walkathon is underway.
