    Special Olympics Figure Skating

    Is there somewhere I can talk about this? They are trying to get to the World Special Olympic games next month in Austria, and I'd like to see them succeed. They have to raise $10k to get there (they have a gofundme) and aren't doing terribly well so far. I'm trying to give them a signal boost (I have no one on the team, just a fan). Can anyone tell me if this would be an appropriate thing to post about here?

    We allow gofundme links in Fan Fests, so I have moved your post to Fan Fests. I hope that anyone who has news about Special Olympics skaters and their events, in any country, will also post here!

    This is some sad news. Special Olympics Illinois is getting rid of figure skating and a few other sports: http://www.dailyherald.com/article/2...ews/170209197/

    Here is a cool article about how an athlete with Down's syndrome from Texas found figure skating. He is competing in the World games next month and it looks like there will be at least some tV coverage: http://www.espn.com/olympics/story/_...figure-skating
