Pride Bite: It’s Special Indeed, at NSU

shark pride logoDid you know that The Special Olympics of Broward County is located on Nova Southeastern University’s main campus in Davie? Thanks in large part to the generosity of NSU philanthropist, Don Taft, and the ongoing fundraising efforts of NSU Board of Trustee Paul Sallarulo, their permanent home is located in a building on the quad in front of the Alvin Sherman Library.

What’s that? You want to get involved with Special Olympics? Volunteers are the backbone of Special Olympics. Depending on your interests and the amount of time you have available, Special Olympics can offer volunteer opportunities including:

  • Day-of-Event Volunteers—Help support county competition in
    county games.
  • Training Program Volunteers—Be a coach or unified partner or
    help support athletes as they train for a sport.
  • County Management Team Committee Volunteers—Use your expertise
    to support the county program through committees including public
    relations, budget and finance, volunteer management, and fund-raising.
  • General Support Volunteers—Help with fund-raising events, speakers
    bureau, entertainment, data entry, secretarial work, or medical exams
    for athletes.

 For more volunteer opportunity information, please call (954) 262-2150.
