Sheriff's School Resource Officers will raise funds for the Special Olympics bowling tournament while enjoying "good food and fun" during the "Wings and Rings" event Tuesday at the Smyrna Toot's.
SROs will visit diners from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and ask for donations to pay for 350 Special Olympians to compete in the bowling tournament in October at Smyrna Bowling Center.
Special Olympics allow intellectually disabled students from Rutherford County and Murfreesboro city schools and adults to compete in athletic events throughout the year.
Co-chair John Harris says Special Olympics allow students to compete in the bowling tournament. He says bowling is an event where you don't necessarily have to be a great athlete to do. Harris says this gives Special Olympians another opportunity to show their skill sets.
