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.
In light of the current uncertainty regarding the spread of the COVID-19 VIRUS, The Derby Committee has decided to postpone the 25th Kiwanis Special Olympics Trout Fishing Derby. The Committee feels that the health and safety of the Public is paramount in its decision. The Trout Fishing Derby is a long-running tradition at Wishon and we hope to resume our 25th Derby in 2021.
The success of the Derby is due to the unselfish contributions from community individuals and business leaders. All sponsorship contributions are donated to the Special Olympics Organization. Thank you to the many 2020 Derby Sponsors listed on the Sponsor page.
It is important for us to continue with our mission to raise funds to benefit Special Olympics even though the derby has been canceled. If you can make a donation this year, it would certainly be appreciated.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Special Olympics Northern California is extending the suspension of all in-person competitions, events, and activities through December 31, 2020.
The CNH District, Division 5 Kiwanis Clubs are operating under the same advisories for all of their Special Olympics events.
