This weekend troopers, along with Special Olympics athletes and volunteers are pumping gas and washing windows to raise money.

“Swimming is my favorite sport, I’ve loved swimming ever since I was a little girl,” said Caroline Gillen, a Special Olympics Athlete.

Gillen is a competitive free-style swimmer.

“I’ve been doing first place, second place maybe some ribbons,” she said.

But on Saturday, she was a volunteer.

Special Olympics parent Darcie Allen said the fundraiser is important, “We’re just here to offer our services to pump some gas and wash some windows and hopefully get some information out on our group and Special Olympics itself,” Allen said.

Allen is a parent and volunteer of the Rutland Eagles Special Olympics team, the team pumped gas and washed windows at the Circle K in Rutland on Saturday, the group received donations on site and will benefit from every gallon Circle K sells. It’s Irving oil’s largest New England Fundraiser called Irvings fueling dreams.
