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.
Even though Kiwanis was unable to conduct our 25th Kiwanis Special Olympics Trout Fishing Derby on July 11, 2020, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Kiwanis is happy to report that the CAL-NEV-HA District, Division 5 clubs presented a donation for $5,400 to Fresno County Special Olympics. The donation is due to the support of sponsorship contributions. Over the past twenty-five years, the fishing derby has contributed a total of $169,180. It has become our signature fundraiser and we are honored to make this contribution.
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.
We continue with our mission to raise funds to benefit Special Olympics every year. If you would like to make a donation and help us in our cause, 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.
