Today, Casey’s General Stores is kicking off a giving campaign to support Special Olympics athletes and Unified partners across its 16-state footprint.
From April 1 to April 15, Casey’s guests can round up their purchases to provide funding for the Special Olympics athletic, health, school, and leadership programs that positively impact the lives of thousands of athletes and Unified partners each year.
“Casey’s is proud to support Special Olympics Wisconsin through this campaign and encourage our guests to stop in and round up their purchase to support these outstanding athletes,” said Katie Petru, Director of Community at Casey’s.
“Special Olympics Wisconsin is thankful for the support of the Casey’s stores throughout Wisconsin and for their ongoing commitment to partnering with us on behalf of the over 9,000 Special Olympic Wisconsin athletes,” said Kathleen Roach, President and CEO of SOWI.
In 2019, Casey’s General Stores, in partnership with Coca-Cola, raised over $2.2 million for Special Olympics.
