On Wednesday, Pride Pals presented the Special Olympics with a check for the money donated during the Jail and Bail event this year, held in the Student Center. Hofstra Goes For Gold, the Special Olympics club, raised $6,575 at Jail and Bail with the help of Pride Pals and Adopt a Dream. Pride Pals president Jordyn Mayerhofer awarded Special Olympics with the check in the Multipurpose Room, along with other Pride Pal members.
Pride Pals was started in November 2013 by Jordyn Mayerhofer and has become a cosponsor for Jail and Bail ever since. The main purpose for the club is to create one-on-one friendships with students with disabilities, and to guide incoming freshmen with disabilities and help them to adjust to college life. Adopt a Dream supports children with disabilities or chronic diseases in pursuing their dreams through fundraising.
