Detail Lex Defenders
Our team has committed to "Pulling for a Purpose" to show our support for the over 10,000 Special Olympics athletes in Kentucky. That’s right, we’re raising money for the chance tp pull a UPS 18-wheeler cargo truck. Why, you ask? Well…because it’s for a great cause! And it helps one of our own.
In 2016, Detail Lex met Christopher “CJ” MacFarlan. He immediately became a huge part of our Detail Lex family. Often, you can stop in our shop and see CJ working and hanging out. He has taught us so much about strength, determination, inclusion, and good sportsmanship. He truly lives by the Special Olympic oath “Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”
All donations to our team will be split between CJ’s Special Olympics basketball team, the Lexington Defenders, and 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 get our team one step closer to our goal of $2,500 and creates a world in which all people with intellectual disabilities have a chance to be accepted and respected in their communities.
