    Pumping Gas to Make Dreams Come True

    A police officer approaches the vehicle as it comes to a stop. The driver watches nervously wondering “what does this officer want with me?” “Good morning ma’am,” says the officer, “may I fill it up and wash the windshield?”  This is not a traffic stop, but an event to benefit Idaho’s Special Olympics.

    The Special Olympics has been making dreams come true for 47 years. Founded by Eunice Kennedy Shriver in 1968, the Special Olympics is the world’s largest sports organization for people with intellectual disabilities. Through the power of sports, people with intellectual disabilities discover new strengths and abilities, skills and success. Special Olympics athletes find joy, confidence, and fulfillment both on the playing field and in life. Here in Idaho this year, 864 athletes throughout the state have participated in traditional summer events including aquatics, basketball, and cycling as well as numerous other summer sports.

    Funding is an important part of ensuring that Special Olympics continues to meet the needs of special athletes. Law Enforcement has a long relationship with Special Olympics promoting fundraisers and public awareness. On Saturday, September 19th, Jerome area public safety personnel partnered with Idaho Special Olympics and the Jerome Maverik store for the annual “Fueling Dreams” event. For about six hours, members of the Jerome County Sheriff’s Office, Jerome Police Department, and Jerome Fire Department pumped gas and washed windows in exchange for donations to benefit Idaho Special Olympics. Approximately 15 local public safety officers participated in the event raising about $1,600 for the cause. Events like this help ensure that Special Olympics will continue to make dreams come true.
