You can fuel your ride and fuel the dreams of our local athletes by heading to any participating Tesoro2Go location statewide and making a donation to Special Olympics Hawai'i.
Your donation will give our local athletes the opportunity to compete on statewide, national and international levels.
As part of the month-long fundraising event, there will be three drawings, each for $500 in Tesoro fuel cards. Those who donate $5 will receive one entry; those who donate $20 will receive five entries. (Donations are not required to enter the drawing.)
"Hawai'i Independent Energy and Tesoro are proud to continue the tradition of hosting Fueling Dreams for the ninth consecutive year to support our Special Olympics Hawai'i athletes," said Eric Lee, general manager of Hawaii Independent Energy's retail group. "It's a way for the entire community to fuel the dreams of these athletes who work hard year-round so that they can proudly represent our state and our country at no cost to them or their families."
To date, Fueling Dreams has raised a cumulative total of $416,000. With participation from customers and others in the community, Hawai'i Independent Energy hopes to raise enough this year to reach the cumulative total of $450,000.
