The Pasco County Tax Collector’s office has raised $7,100 for the Special Olympics of Pasco, the office announced Monday.
Special Olympics of Pasco is a sports and training program for people with intellectual disabilities. The Pasco program includes 1,500 students.
“Special Olympics of Pasco has long held a special place in my heart,” said Tax Collector Mike Fasano. “The athletes and the volunteers who work with them are some of the kindest, most positive people I have ever met.”
Funds raised last year helped the Pasco team attend the 2022 National Special Olympics USA Games in Orlando earlier this month.
