Final Leg Update - 14 February 2015

Dear Final Leg Team Members;

It's been a little while since out last general team communication but we wanted to be able to give you as much detail as possible and we are now at a point where we have solidified many of our plans and want to share them with you!  We have been working hard on every aspect of the Final Leg from flights, to routes, ceremonies, accommodations, uniforms and so much more.  Flights are still being booked, so if you have not received your flight itinerary, you should be receiving them shortly.  Our travel agent has been overwhelmed over the last several weeks with flight cancellations and re-schedules due to significant weather (snow) issues here on the east coast of the United States.  

I have attached a letter that goes in to great detail about the Final Leg event.  There are still more details being worked out and we will provide you with information as it becomes available.  

The next big step for you as a runner is to have your program or the person responsible pay your uniform cost.  

We have been able to keep the cost of the uniform kit down due to the generosity of our great partner, Adidas.  Each program is responsible for the payment of the runner’s uniform kit.  The total cost of the uniform kit is $425 USD.  We need all of the programs to go to our Final Leg website and make payment for the uniform kit as soon as possible.  Special Olympics Athletes, Logistics Team Members and Running Team Leaders, this does not apply to you.  

Payment is made through a secure server on our website via credit card, Mastercard, Visa, Discover, American Express or e-check.  In order to make payment, please go to the Final Leg website at  Once you are on the site, click on the “2015 Los Angeles” tab on the top menu bar, then click on “Uniform Payments” from the drop down list.  This is a password protected site.  The User name for this area will be the same for everyone making payment as well as the password.

The User Name is:  uniform

The Password is:    payment 

These are case sensitive and must be all lower case as written above!

There are five (5) programs that cannot pay with this method due to the payment vender not having agreements with their countries; Bahamas,Cyprus, Gibraltar, Turks & Caicos & St. Kitts & Nevis.  We will contact you individually for a credit card number for this payment.

After reading the attached letter with the Final Leg updates, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me or your respective Team Leader.

See you in 146 days!

All the best;

John Newnan
Team Captain
2015 Los Angeles Final Leg
