Rooster Teeth has always been about community and we have launched a GoFundMe campaign to bring that spirit to an amazing event.This time, Burnie Burns, Gavin Free, and the rest of Rooster Teeth is needing YOUR help to raise money for the Special Olympics which sends athletes from all over the world (literally, over 100 different countries) to the Special Olympics World Games each year!
"I'm thrilled that Rooster Teeth is able to support the Special Olympics in a meaningful way through this GoFundMe initiative," said Burnie Burns, co-founder and Chief Creative Officer at Rooster Teeth. "Gavin and I are overjoyed to be able to attend the Winter Games and witness these incredible athletes as they fulfill their lifelong dreams."
The money you donate will help the Special Olympics continue to be possible which means amazing athletes such as Ian Rawn, from Plano, TX. whose participated in the Special Olympics for 28 years now can keep working toward their dreams.
Ian is participating in the 2017 World Games because he's dreamed about competing on the world stage since he was a kid and watched the Olympics figure skaters on TV in 1996 in Japan. One day, he hopes to compete regularly in sports such as basketball, volleyball, swimming, bowling, and figure skating -- his favorite. Eventually, he would love to coach other athletes in figure skating.
Outside of Olympics training, Ian juggles a variety of activities where he's a firefighter, a paramedic, and a volunteer for his church youth group, and a coach for other Special Olympics athletes. “I love everything I do. It's really amazing that I get to do many cool things in life,” says Ian.Any and all donations will help send the Special Olympics support athletes like Ian!
