THE STORY:

Fiji & ASA wrote -

Miles for Medals is the annual fall philanthropic event of the Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) fraternity and Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority. Established in 2010, Miles for Medals has been the most successful philanthropic event of any Greek organization on campus, raising over $30,000 for Special Olympics Virginia to date. This year we will be holding a 5k run/walk in order to raise awareness and support for the Special Olympics of Virginia and fundraise to support their athletes. 

Miles for Medals is raising funds for Special Olympics Virginia, a year-round program of sports training and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. In this competition, the real winners are the athletes who train and compete in Special Olympics. They remind us that anyone can accomplish great things if only given the chance.

Event

Miles for Medals will be a 5k run/walk held November 15th, 2014 at JMU's UPark starting at 11:00AM. Following the run there will be a cookout/tailgate with food and games for all participants. 

Nonprofit

Special Olympics is a year-round international program of sports training and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in the sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community. By using sport as a vehicle for social change, Special Olympics Virginia strives to create opportunities for meaningful interaction and self discovery for everyone, and the organization’s goal is to open the heart and mind of every Virginian to the value and ability of the intellectually disabled. Special Olympics Virginia Inc. is the state program of Special Olympics Incorporated.
