We donated $10,000 to Special Olympics Massachusetts to support their work changing the way the world sees individuals with intellectual disabilities.
Special Olympics Massachusetts’s Director of Development, Stephanie Esposito, received the donation at a special presentation with RagingBull.com Foundation Founders Jeff Bishop and Jason Bond, Special Olympics Massachusetts athlete Tyler Lagasse, and RagingBull.com’s President of Operations, Nathan Stavseth.
Esposito said, “We are so grateful for the Raging Bull Foundation’s generosity for this donation to Special Olympics Massachusetts. This will continue to help our work at Special Olympics to further our mission in creating a more inclusive world for us all.
“Through the power of sport, the Special Olympics movement transforms the lives of people with intellectual disabilities,” added Esposito.
Special Olympics Massachusetts athlete, Tyler Lagasse, – pictured – added, “Special Olympics’s emphasis on inclusion has helped me to do better in my life outside of Special Olympics. I graduated from college, UMass Lowell and I’ve been able to travel all across the country. It’s been a wealth of experience, an absolute joy.”
Although now a successful trading educator, prior to his current work with RagingBull.com, Jason Bond was an elementary school gym teacher, and is excited to support the work of Special Olympics.
“I am truly excited thrilled to help Special Olympics to continue their incredible work! They provide an amazing range of opportunities, support, and programs for athletes.” said Jason.
The donation by RagingBull.com Foundation is another in a series of donations made to various charities since 2017, and the foundation has so far donated over $500,000 to charities and philanthropic organizations.
