Check out the new Latham Center's Toolbar!

We have something new and exciting we'd like to share with you! It’s the new Latham Centers toolbar!

The toolbar also has a search box, and each time you search the Internet, about a penny is donated to Latham Centers. CLICK HERE to add this toolbar to your computer.

Please pass this along to all of your friends! The two minutes it takes to add this toolbar to your browser can make a lifetime of difference!

Only Two Weeks Left! Make Your Donation Today!

It's Jolly Jaunt time again, and Latham needs your help. Latham’s Special Olympics program survives, and thrives, because of voluntary donations like yours. In the Children's program, over half the student population participate in Special Olympics every season throughout the year. It is the backbone of the work we do here.
The Jolly Jaunt is the main fundraiser of the season and involves a 10k run through the streets of Hyannis. This year’s Jaunt takes place on December 6th. Because of the money raised last year, all of our students were able to participate as much as they wanted without charge. We were able to buy new uniforms, equipment and awards for post-season parties. In this time of fiscal restraint, we were actually able to expand our Special Olympics program to include Flag Football.
Your donation is so important and 100% goes directly to the kids. Please CLICK HERE and donate to one of the individual runners or make a general team donation today. Thanks!

Latham Runs the Field At Gillette Stadium

The Latham Hawks were part of the inaugural flag football season for Special Olympics. On Sunday November 1st, the final game was held at Gillette Stadium. The boys and the girls have been working hard all season to learn the rules and skills of this new sport and were determined to do their best on Sunday. Head coach Wayne McDonald has done a fabulous job with the team and has successfully laid the foundation for this new team to survive into the future. Way to go Hawks!
