2004 was the only year the Pig Bowl was not played for a specific person or family.  A recipient was not located in time for the event so organizers decided to have each team pick their own charity.  Les Schwab played for ACCLAIMING CHRIST THROUGH SPORTS and the Cops played for the LOCAL SPECIAL OLYMPICS.  Because the Cops won the game 65% of the money raised went to the Special Olympics and 35% of the money went to Acclaiming Christ Through Sports.

The mission of ACTS International is to provide, present, and promote the gospel of Jesus Christ, using sports as a way of communicating with youth; to equip youth with the knowledge and skills necessary to make healthy life-style choices, especially concerning abstaining from the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs, and regarding sexual abstinence until married; to disciple youth in the Word of God in small groups; and to establish youth into the local church.

Special Olympics Oregon
Inspire greatness. No other maxim could be more fitting for Special Olympics Oregon, an organization that, at every level, flourishes or fails on its ability to empower individuals. It applies, of course, to the remarkable athletes who, by their very greatness, inspire the staff, board, and volunteers, and extends to excite the community as a whole.

Here in Oregon, while Special Olympics Oregon serves close to 5,000 athletes throughout the state, nearly 70,000 people with intellectual disabilities could benefit from participating in Special Olympics. Still growing, Special Olympics Oregon is efficiently expanding programs to get closer and closer to serving every individual with intellectual disabilities that qualifies to participate in Special Olympics.

The mission of Special Olympics Oregon is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes, and the community.

Special Olympics Oregon offers training and competition opportunities in 15 different Olympic-style sports. There are three seasons throughout the year, with four statewide competitions: Winter Games, Summer Games and Fall Games.

With 4 State Games events and 14 Regional Competitions, Special Olympics Oregon holds events in every region of the state, every month of the year, providing athletes the opportunity to be competing and training all as often as they choose.

Special Olympics athletes train intensely for eight weeks prior to each State Games event. Volunteer coaches are responsible for training the athletes. Volunteers must complete a certification program prior to becoming Special Olympics coaches and must attend training schools before each season.
