Here you'll find an array of materials and images to introduce you to this 25-year long outreach to the poor -- a mission to which we are wholeheartedly committed. As you'll note in the Prior Media section, this is a virtually UNTOLD story, with just one brief article referencing the Disney team's multiple builds to date; in fact, the last local San Diego ABC segment aired way back in 2000. So we're hopeful you'll share the good news of this life-changing and volunteer-powered effort with your audience -- especially as we now prepare to celebrate our quarter century anniversary by building 25 homes for impoverished families over the course of ONE weekend in May, one home to symbolize each year of our program's existence.
We're overjoyed to announce 17 international Olympians -- most of whom are medalists -- will be joining the other 500 volunteers in constructing 25 homes in a single weekend during our upcoming anniversary build. Here's the confirmed list to date. Also volunteering their efforts will be the father/son cancer survivors who won last year's The Amazing Race (CBS), Connor & David O'Leary.
Here's our most recent press release announcing the participation of these esteemed athletes in our upcoming mega event:
