Fundraising Walkathon and Fun Charity Bazaar 2009
People with an intellectual disability are often misunderstood or ignored, yet when they are given a fair chance they can, and do, participate as valuable members of the community. For this belief, Special Olympics Brunei Darussalam endeavors to provide sport for all people with an intellectual disability, regardless of their skill level. Through sport, Special Olympics Brunei Darussalam aims to give our special athletes the opportunity to get fit, develop skills, make friends and be part of a community.
Special Olympics Brunei Darussalam caters for athletes who just want to participate, right up to elite athletes who want to compete on a world stage. And with local, national and international competitions Special Olympics Brunei Darussalam give them plenty of opportunities to achieve their best potentials and possibly, dreams.
Thus to help them accomplish their potentials and dreams, Special Olympics Brunei Darussalam will be organising a Fundraising Walkathon from Taman SOAS, Bandar Seri Begawan to Stadium Negara Hassanal Bolkiah in Berakas and a Fun Charity Bazaar at theStadium Negara area on Sunday, 3rd May 2009. The walkathon is expected to begin with participants assembling at at the Taman SOAS at 6.30 a.m. and for the Walkathon to begin at 7.00 a.m. It is expected to be completed by 8.30 a.m. at the Stadium Negara. Meanwhile, the Fun Charity Bazaar at the Stadium Negara will be from 8.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m.
The fundraising Walkathon as well as the Fun Charity Bazaar is open to the public. Anyone who is interested in renting a booth for the Fun Charity Bazaar is welcomed to download the Special Olympics Brunei Darussalam Charity Bazaar 2009 Booths Forms at www.sobrunei.com. The rent of a booth will cost B$40 and at least 10% of the booth’s profit must be donated to Special Olympics Brunei Darussalam funds. These funds raised on that day will then be used to provide all the sports training programs as well as the sporting competitions for the athletes. In particular, it is hoped that the event will help to generate enough funds to prepare our special athletes to compete in the next World Special Olympics in Athens in 2011.
