Special Olympics event happening in Chippewa Valley cities

Eau Claire (WQOW) Fill up your gas tank for a good cause! The Special Olympics Filling the Dream event is happening on Saturday.

All Mega Holiday gas stations in Eau Claire, Chippewa Falls and Altoona will donate five cents per gallon pumped to local Special Olympics athletes. In order to make the fundraiser a success, volunteers are needed to pump gas for customers. Director of Development, Karen Kraus said it's a small time commitment that can make a big difference.

"We want this to be a time of bonding for groups to get out and just do something good in the community and if they work just even a half a shift in the morning or the afternoon they are going to go away knowing that they had a huge impact on our program," Kraus said.

The event runs this Saturday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. If you're interested in volunteering for the event, you can call 715-833-0833.
