While the country is immersed in watching athletes compete in the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, there are 7,000 more Olympic athletes preparing for the 2015 Los Angeles summer games. The Los Angeles games are held for intellectually disabled individuals as part of the ongoing global movement known as the Special Olympics.
Millions of individuals benefit by participating in the Special Olympics and they are not just the athletes. The Special Olympics organization gives intellectually disabled people the opportunity to focus on strengths and abilities they otherwise may not have known existed. Volunteers gain perspective on the abilities of those with intellectual disabilities.
So how can you help?
Thousands of people each year show their support for the Special Olympics by volunteering or donating to the cause, as we do here at Cooper, Adel & Associates. In addition to our support of the Special Olympics, we offer planning tools to allow parents and grandparents the ability to leave an inheritance for an intellectually disabled child or grandchild without the concern that they could lose any government benefit by doing so. We believe life should be easier for those you leave behind, not harder and not planning properly could cause an unintended hardship for a child or grandchild who receives government benefits. Don't let that happen to your loved ones. Call our office to schedule your complementary consultation to begin planning for an intellectually disabled loved one.
