Special Olympics Texas needs your help. Check out the video, and how you can help an athlete finish their race.

When you start the video above, you also see an athlete start their race, but after only a short period of time the video freezes. It freezes for a good cause, an invitation to the viewer to make a donation to Special Olympics Texas.

Follow the link in the video to a donation page, and when you do you'll be given an option to donate various amounts of money or to enter your own amount. When you make a donation, you'll see a confirmation, thank you page and a video of the the athlete finishing their race!
