It’s incredible how everyone comes together to help those who need it the most. “Richard Fleming, Director, Palm Beach County Special Olympics.
Since this event began a few years back, it’s been incredibly successful thanks to the support of the CMAA, the charities involved and of course, the support of Wycliffe members and other organizations throughout Palm Beach County.
