Seeing the torch for the 2015 Special Olympics being carried through Colorado is a good reminder of just how important it is to make sure charities in our state thrive.
Julian Hall is a Special Olympics athlete and won the silver medal in tennis in the World Games.
Hall and his father joined Denver7 this week to talk about donating to Colorado's Special Olympics program.
Nearly .80 of every dollar directly supports athletes and athlete programming, officials say.
It's not too late to make a donation - just go to http://www.specialolympicsco.org/give/
