Drew Stanton’s High 5ive Foundation is helping Special Olympics Michigan athletes achieve their dreams by donating $17,000 to help cover equipment, training, and competition costs this winter.
After hearing that the Farmington ski team was in need of funds in order to compete this year, the former Michigan State standout and current NFL quarterback’s foundation stepped up to help by donating $3,000 to the team to cover equipment and training costs.
Local Special Olympics programs in Area 8 (Ingham and Eaton Counties) and Area 28 (Clinton County) will also receive $2,000 each for equipment and uniform expenses. The remaining $10,000 will benefit athletes from all across Michigan with the funds going to help support the 2018 Special Olympics Michigan State Winter Games that take place January 30 through February 2 in the greater Traverse City area.
Drew Stanton and his wife Kristin have financially supported Special Olympics Michigan since 2008, both locally and at the state level.
