The Special Olympics team will use the money for transportation, equipment, and team activities.
Some special athletes received a special donation Wednesday morning.
Taco John's restaurants presented some Sioux City Special Olympics athletes a check for more than $2,500. The money comes from the 13 Siouxland Taco John's locations from their Nachos Navidad promotion in December. The Special Olympics team will use the money for transportation, equipment, and team activities.
"Because we care and its a great way to give back to the community. They support us we and we want to support them," says Jennifer Solma with Taco John's restaurants.
"People with disabilities like to do other sports like soccer, swimming, and bowling with friends," says Andrea Emery, a Special Olympics athlete.
Sioux City just formed a new Special Olympics team in December. Called the Sioux City Knights and Weekends, the athletes on the team will train and compete in local, regional, and state events.
