CenturyLink is teaming up with Sounders FC to support Special Olympics Washington Unified Sports. The Unified Soccer program promotes social inclusion through shared training events and competitions for individuals with and without intellectual disabilities. Through the CenturyLink Crossbar Challenge, Sounders FC provides Unified athletes with opportunities to shine – in front of 40,000 fans! Each home match that a participant hits the crossbar, CenturyLink will donate $2,500 to Special Olympics Washington! In the event that the crossbar does not get hit, CenturyLink will still make a $500 contribution to Special Olympics Washington.
