24 Hours Nothing But Net
Inspired by her son, Frankie, and his love of sports, Debbie Antonelli created the 24 Hours Nothing But Net (24NBN) fundraiser for Special Olympics. This year, UNC Asheville basketball teams will take on Debbie’s challenge in an effort to raise funds for Special Olympics NC athletes!

Special Olympics North Carolina is excited to partner with Dunkin’ Donuts for the Community Cups icon campaign taking place May 9-22! The public can visit any of the participating Dunkin’ Donuts store locations to support SONC, donate and fill out the icon.
Every four years, Special Olympics holds a national competition for Special Olympics athletes across the United States. The next Special Olympics USA Games will be held June 5-12, 2022, in Orlando, Florida.
