  • Special Olympics Alaska received $20,000 in support of its biggest community fundraiser, the Alaska Law Enforcement Torch Run, and a few grassroots programs like Dining with Darci.
  • Special Olympics Arizona received $15,000 in support of the Polar Plunge, Law Enforcement Torch Run, and Breakfast with Champions.
  • Special Olympics California received $1,000 in support of the Big Bear Polar Plunge.
  • Special Olympics Washington received $15,000 in support of the Polar Plunge, Community Challenge, and Tasting Room gala.

Special Olympics’ mission is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

“Special Olympics is a catalyst for inclusion that has been improving our communities for more than 50 years. Alaska USA is committed to helping the communities we serve not only through financial support but through employee volunteerism. By partnering with these programs, we are helping them continue to provide essential services now and well into the future,” said the credit union’s President and CEO Geoff Lundfelt.
