LANCASTER TOWNSHIP, Pa.-- The Castle Roller Skating Rink in Lancaster hosted a fundraiser for the Special Olympics on Sunday afternoon.

For every admission, an anonymous donor gave $4.00 to the Special Olympics of Lancaster County. In addition, owners of the rink donated another $2.00. The coach of the Special Olympics Roller Skating team says the sport is all about trying your best.

"I always tell my athletes, I don't care what you come in. You could come in tenth place or first place, I don't care. I tell them as long as you're happy and you did your best, that's the only thing I could ask for," says Head Coach Mick Conrad.

The Special Olympics of Lancaster County offers 15-different Olympic type sports to people with intellectual disabilities, at no cost.
