Proceeds from the RBTS help to support MPS youth recreation programs. Here are some of the highlights of what’s been accomplished with funds from the past four run/walk events: it’s helped to purchase much needed youth sports equipment - including bowling ramps for our Special Olympics athletes; it’s provided opportunities to expand student participation in basketball leagues; and the funds have helped to support a once in a lifetime opportunity for an adaptive student athlete to attend the Special Olympics UNITY Sports Weekend in Orlando, Florida during the NBA All Star Game!
