The #AngelsforAthletes Challenge is a fun way everyone can support Special Olympics Connecticut athletes this winter. Here’s how:
- Make a snow angel and have a friend or family member take a photo or video;
- Sign up and make a donation by visiting org and clicking on #AngelsforAthletes;
- Post the photo or video of your snow angel on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #AngelsforAthletes and challenge three (3) friends to do the same by tagging them in your post.
No snow where you are or don’t like the cold? Snow angels do not need to be the traditional kind, created outside in the snow. You can make your angel in the grass, on the beach, on the floor filled with toys or wrapping paper, or wearing a costume. The possibilities are endless and the more creative the better!
