ACAC Donates to Special Olympics

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds of Special Olympics athletes in Charlottesville and Albemarle County are celebrating Friday night.

ACAC presented the program with a check for more than $36,000. ACAC raised the money for Special Olympics through a promotion where new members could join for 25 days for $25.

"It's just a tremendous opportunity for us to keep expanding our program, getting more individuals who have disabilities in athletic opportunities and this money can be used to expose a lot more people to our programs," said Special Olympics coach David Zentmyer.

The money will go to new uniforms and to help students travel to tournaments.

Friday, the basketball teams left to compete against 60 other teams in the Virginia state basketball tournament.
