Special Olympics AZ Guardian Games - Sponsored by Sanderson Ford

Sanderson Ford has taken on another community endeavor to raise funding for Special Olympics Arizona.

Rosie on the House along with Sanderson Ford are proud to sponsor the first ever Law Enforcement Torch Run Guardian Games on Friday, February 17th at Westgate Entertainment District. Unified teams of 4 will compete in 9 events located through out Westgate. Each team will consist of 1 Special Olympics Athlete, 2 sponsor participants, and 1 Law Enforcement Officer. The concept of the games is to develop a closer relationship between Special Olympics athletes, law enforcement and Arizona businesses through a fun and unique format.

Special Olympics Arizona would not exist today — and could not have been created — without the time, energy, commitment and enthusiasm of people just like you, thousands of individuals who choose to take a little time from busy schedules to make the world a better place. Please help support The Sanderson Ford Guardian Games.

100% of all money raised will benefit Special Olympics Arizona

Special Olympics Arizona empowers children and adults with intellectual disabilities to live healthy, fulfilling and meaningful lives to the fullest extent of their ability. SOAZ athletes attain acceptance and respect through inclusive health, leadership and social justice programs, as well as year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports.

Sanderson Ford is a proud sponsor of the Arizona Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR). The mission of the LETR is to raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics Arizona. Law enforcement agencies and personnel carry the Flame of Hope Torch in dedication to the athletes of Special Olympics Arizona throughout the state.
