A Mile of Quarters, A Foot For Special Olympics!
Did you know that if you put 13 quarters side by side they would equal 1 foot? And how many of
you remember from your school days that there are 5,280 feet in a mile? These two trivia facts
are the focus of a summer campaign that we are launching for The Arc of Mower County, called
“A Mile Of Quarters!” For every $3.25 you can purchase a foot in our campaign or 10 feet = $32.50, 15 feet = $48.75, 30 feet = $100 and 50 feet will cost you $162.50. We’re sure you are starting
to see the pattern here. You can purchase as many feet as you want.
How does Arc plan to use the money raised? We have over 100 athletes that participate in
Special Olympics Basketball, Bowling, Softball and Track and Field. From hotel rooms and tournament fees to transportation and vehicle rentals, we try very hard to keep the cost of our
sports activities to a minimum. With added funds to our Special Olympics budget, we can continue
to provide these sports activities to as many people with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities that need them.
We are hoping that you, our membership, will support this campaign yourselves as well as
spreading the word to your friends, family members, neighbors, co-workers or any organization
that you are a part of. For every donation raised we will put a decal of a foot in our windows at
The Arc so you can watch our progress. Send your donations to The Arc Mower County at
401 2nd Ave NE, Austin, MN 55912 or by using the form below.
Thank you for your support!!
