Delmarva Power continued its support for Special Olympics Delaware by sponsoring the organization’s annual Ride to the Tide fundraiser April 22.

This is the eighth year the company has supported the event. The annual event raised nearly $300,000 during 12 years of rides. This year, nearly 100 riders from Delmarva Power joined more than 1,400 bikers and passengers in raising $63,000 to support Special Olympics Delaware.

Partnering with Special Olympics Delaware, which provides sports training and athletic competition for more than 4,200 children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage and experience joy, other Special Olympics athletes and the community, aligns with the company’s charitable goals of directly improving the quality of life for customers and communities across its service area.
