molly

 

Molly Hincka:

Doctors said Molly would never walk or even talk. Her mother knew different and was determined to never allow that to happen. She never saw the things her child could not do; she only imagined what she could do. Molly’s mother turned out to be right when experiencing her child do the impossible, walking at age 4 and talking by age 5.

Now, 20 years later, Molly is a Special Olympics athlete who participated in the 2011 World Games. Molly was a top performer at the games and took home a Silver medal in the 3000 meter run and Bronze medals in the 4 x 400 meter relay and 5000 meter run. Molly is now preparing to participate in the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) Central Route relay which will have her running the five-mile stretch of the Mackinac bridge this coming September.

Special Olympics Michigan continues to provide Molly with the transformative power of sport for opportunities to experience inclusion, acceptance, unity, respect, friendship and joy.

Our Dallas Charity

Hey Dallas!

We are headed your way this week. We can’t wait to see y’all at the 5k Foam Fest this weekend! I’d like to introduce you to the charity that is benefiting from your foamy muddy fun. We are teaming up with Mercury One.

Mercury One is a private charity that aims to join hands with its fellow citizens in improving the human condition in any way it can. When Mercury One caught wind of a young girl giving up her birthday party to raise money for feeding the homeless, for instance, they were inspired and wanted to help. Thanks to Mercury One supporters, the company pitched in $10,000 to help the young girl’s cause. They then joined forces with Glenn Beck and Wolfgang Puck to throw her the biggest birthday party she’s ever seen.

Later in 2012, when Hurricane Sandy ripped through the northeast United States, Mercury One was there to help. Thanks to the overwhelming support of concerned Americans, Mercury One was able to partner with a number of churches and other charitable organizations to provide food, blankets, emergency kits, and other necessities after the region was devastated by the storm.

Reverend Peter M. DeArruda from NYSUM (one of the charitable organizations Mercury One partnered with) said, “We cannot thank Mercury One enough for your kind and compassionate support. . . You continue to enable us to house, feed, train and deploy NYSUM’s ministry teams for massive outreaches throughout New York City – in partnership with NYC pastors, churches and not for profits.”
