As the assistant area director for Prince George’s County Special Olympics, he also helps raise money for the group’s uniforms, medals and venue space for training and competition. The next event is a 5-K Run / 3-Mile Inspiration Walk at 10 a.m. on April 13 on the University of Maryland campus. It starts and ends at Ritchie Coliseum, where there will be a family festival after the race, complete with moon bounces, parachute games and more. To support the cause, you can make a tax-deductible donation even after the event at
