The CNH District, Division 5 Kiwanis Clubs support the Special Olympics Northern California with various events throughout the year. Our clubs' events such as the fishing derby, bowling nights, polar plunges and more, we are able to raise tens of thousands of dollars every year to help the athletes develop and compete.
Unfortunately, our Kiwanis Division 5 has decided to discontinue the fishing derby.
There were just too many uncertainties and obstacles that our derby committee faced. We regret that we are unable to hold this worthwhile event. The Trout Fishing Derby was a 25 year tradition at Wishon. Kiwanis Division 5 was proud to be involved. Because of the sponsors volunteers and the participation of the participants, the derby helped raise over $160,000 dollars to benefit Special Olympics.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Special Olympics Northern California is extending the suspension of all in-person competitions, events, and activities through July 16, 2021.
The CNH District, Division 5 Kiwanis Clubs are operating under the same advisories for all of their Special Olympics events.
