Lincoln Savings Bank became a premier statewide partner in 2015, after becoming the presenting sponsor for the West Des Moines and Cedar Falls/Waterloo Polar Plunges®. Since becoming a statewide partner Lincoln Savings Bank has also begun sponsoring the Special Olympics Athlete of the Game at all University of Northern Iowa home men’s basketball games and provides tickets for athletes and their families to attend an Iowa Cubs game each year.
Lincoln Savings Bank employees and their mascot, Lincoln, can be seen at the Summer Games each May, either volunteering at the athletics competition or interacting with athletes during the Olympic Festival.
“I am grateful to my employer, Lincoln Savings Bank, and to the Special Olympics of Iowa for the opportunity to volunteer at the Summer Games. As a proud parent to a 3-year-old son who was born with a condition that provides him some unique physical “opportunities” it brings me great joy to see the enthusiasm and passion on the athletes smiling faces. It also gives me a confident hope to know that my son may be one of those athletes some day. Thanks to everyone that makes these Games possible for our great state.” – Jeremy Thesing, Lender, LSB
