Lexington Dragons

The Lexington Dragons is a Special Olympics of Kentucky basketball team, and our team has a full roster with 15 athletes. Our athletes get to participate without paying any type of fee, which is made possible only through SOKY as an organization and the generosity of those contributing to our fundraisers, like this one. We have expenses year-to-year including league fees, tournament fees, and regionals and (if we’re lucky enough to make it), the state tournament. We have equipment needs that arise from time to time, too, like uniforms, basketballs, and other practice supplies. We are participating in SOKY’s Share the Proceeds program, so while your sponsorship helps SOKY as an organization, much of the money we raise goes directly to our team! YOUR help will be integral to making sure we have a great season this year AND next. Thank you for your help!
 
Our team has committed to braving the cold and get “Freezin’ for a Reason” to show our support for the over 8,900 Special Olympics athletes in Kentucky. That’s right, we’re raising money for the chance to jump into ice cold water. Why, you ask? Well…we’re a little bonkers, but it’s also for a great cause! All donations to our team will go to Special Olympics Kentucky to provide year-round sports training and competition opportunities to children and adults with intellectual disabilities.  Through sports, Special Olympics athletes build confidence, self-esteem, and develop skills they can take off the field and into their everyday lives.  Every $25 we raise helps provide a season of athletic competition for one Special Olympics athlete. Your donation helps push us in the frigid water and creates a world in which all people with intellectual disabilities have a chance to be accepted and respected in their communities.
