The California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison at Corcoran (SATF), along with the inmate population, conducted inmate food sales and a torch run across the institution’s facilities to raise money for the Special Olympics.
The Special Olympics have been making Olympic dreams come true for otherwise-abled athletes since 1968. The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
Chief Deputy Warden T. Cisneros said, “It was a great opportunity for departmental employees to work together with the inmate population to raise the proceeds for a greater good. We hope the money donated will assist the athletes of the Special Olympics to make their dreams of gold come true. From facility staff to the inmate population, none of this could have been accomplished without a true team effort.”
