Red Nose Day is a global day of “FUN-raising” with a mission
to drive positive change through the power of entertainment and is commonly
observed in the United States with the sale of red foam noses from local
Walgreens. The campaign’s objective is to raise awareness and money
for children in poverty. All proceeds support various projects that ensure
that children and young people in all 50 U.S. states and 15 other countries
are safe, healthy, and educated.

Beam Legal Team has been helping our special needs clients by winning lawsuits
that help provide money to cope with the challenges of disabilities for
over 30 years. As a result of medical negligence that resulted in his
diagnosis of
Cerebral Palsy, Jason Royal and his mother, Brenda, were introduced into the Beam Legal
Team family. We helped them, like countless others, seek the justice they
deserved in a court of law.

On May 26, 2016, Beam Legal Team celebrated Red Nose Day by donating to
the Bullitt County Special Olympics in Kentucky in honor of Jason and
Brenda Royal. For over 25 years, Brenda has coordinated the Bullitt County
Special Olympics. The Special Olympics provides year-round sports training
and athletic competitions in Olympic-style sports for children and adults
with disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to demonstrate
courage, develop physical fitness, experience joy, and participate in
the sharing of gifts, skills, and friendships with their families, their
community, and other Special Olympic Athletes. Bullitt County athletes
have the opportunity to compete in two sports: bowling and track and field.

Jason Royal has participated in the Special Olympics since he turned eight
years old. According to his mother, Jason, now 34, “loves bowling
more than any sport.” Brenda has been coaching Jason and other athletes
in both bowling and track and field for over 25 years. “My son Jason
is the reason I got into coordinating Special Olympics here in this county,”
Brenda told us. “This unique and funny man has changed my life and
I am a better person in so many ways for it. He changes the lives of everyone
he comes in contact with! He’s such a joy to be around! He is my

and each local organization throughout the state is responsible for their
