This 8-week distance challenge encourages Special Olympics athletes as well as their family and friends from across the SONA Region to get and stay active this fall. From October 19 through December 13, 2020, participants will track how far they walk, run or roll in their wheelchairs as part of a Region-wide competition.
The SONA Stride Challenge registration opens October 7 for all Special Olympics athletes across the SONA Region to register as an individual or part of a Unified pair. Family, friends and supporters can participate as a Unified partner teamed up with a Special Olympics athlete.
After registering, participants will use Strava to track their distance, and self-report their distance weekly.

STATEMENT ON NMLETR FUNDS
NMLETR and SONM operate on a centralized financial accounting system. Each active NMLETR agency is given a separate financial account for deposits and disbursements managed by SONM to ensure accounting consistency and legitimacy. Only local agency coordinators can authorize disbursements by completing a Check Request/Advance form. Each month, SONM sends each active NMLETR agency a statement summarizing disbursements and deposits.
Fifty percent of all funds raised by active NMLETR agencies support SONM State Competitions and sports program initiatives—while the remaining 50% of funds raised by active LETR agencies are allocated annually to support local programs from those communities where agencies are located (e.g. NMLETR Farmington PD dollars support Special Olympics Farmington). All Chapter, NMLETR, and local program accounts are audited annually by a certified public accounting firm.
Local Agency and State Program Sponsorship opportunities are available to local businesses and community partners statewide. Benefits packages are created to serve the priorities of the business/community partners as well as Special Olympics New Mexico and NMLETR. NMLETR Statewide Sponsorships are not included in annual allocations, but are used to support Special Olympics New Mexico’s sports training and competition program.
