MFLCares goes over the edge with Special Olympics of Iowa

In 1998 I donated $35 to Special Olympics of Iowa. It was a start and this organization has held a special place in my heart ever since. This year Midwest Family Lending, where I am proud to work, made a donation of $1600 to SOIA! Because of this donation, I was asked if I’d like to “Go Over the Edge” (rappel down a 345 foot building) and I absolutely did! Everyone should have the opportunity for the same experience. Not rappelling down the building, but experiencing the unconditional love shown by the athletes at the bottom. The 3 girls in the picture all compete because people are willing to support Special Olympics Iowa. The opportunity to help fund athletes with mental and physical disabilities so they can simply compete and be proud of their accomplishments is humbling. These athletes are a wonderful examples of what sports and life should be about.
