Joe Jonas Supports Special Olympics

Joe Jonas Supports Special Olympics

Joe Jonas perfects his sprint as he competes in the iWin 5K Race to support the Special Olympics in San Antonio, Texas on Thursday afternoon (August 13).

The 19-year-old musician’s self-titled fun run will benefit the Jonas Brothers‘ Change for the Children Foundation and Special Olympics Texas, which provides sports training for disabled kids and adults.

Special Olympics Texas PR coordinator Andi Baca Kelly shared, “(Jonas) is a runner, and he wanted to do something that promoted health and got people moving. We’re very excited.”

Joe ran alongside former San Antonio Spurs basketball player Bruce Bowen plus fifteen lucky participants who also won a meet-and-greet with the star.

  • SJS

    That’s just awesome that he chose to use his free time to do an amazing charity event for the Special Olympics. That’s one of the great things about the Jonas Brothers. More so than most stars nowadays, you constantly hear about them being involved in charity and doing good things to support great causes. :)

    I was at the run. It was a lot of fun. Joe was so sweet to all the special Olympics athletes. I think he finished in around 20 minutes. I came in a couple minutes after him. I was lucky enough to meet him at the concert that night.

  • Lauren

    Yeah, Trace thinks they r fake when they r not

  • rock_chic_chick


    most likely it is disney wanting them to do these events, also it adds to their stupid “perfect” lives to look good.

  • Lauren


    u r 100% wrong & stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Karina

  • Madison

    Trace Cyrus says he could probably beat up kevin and joe if they ever lay a hand on him, PSH, joe has guns and muscles and he could beat trace aka anorexic bony punk anyday.

  • Jess

    Awsome Joe!! :D

  • c

    yumm :D

    i loveeee you joe jonass with all my heart♥
    you are the hottestt guy in the whole dammm worldd[[:

  • SJS

    @rock_chic_chick: I’m not gonna claim I know them, but I think you’re wrong. I do charity work too. I also have purple hair & don’t give a shit what other people think of me. Not every celeb who does good is only doing it for their image.

    Have you ever thought that maybe they have this good guys because they ARE good guys? We already know they aren’t perfect & they’ve said that a million times. No need to be negative about them doing good things.

  • kara

    such an awesome thing to support!
    awesome job joe :)

  • sahar

    i luv the girl in pic #3 everyone is sweating and she isn”t and she manages to take a pictur of joe!!!!!!!!!! cutey pattuty!!!

  • ponytail

    People like you who are misinformed and yet judgemental of other
    people’s good deeds are so pathetic. The brothers never once said
    that they have”perfect lives” or that they are perfect. At least Joe is
    doing something good, while you are sitting and typing on your computer bashing someone you don’t even know. Why don’t you volunteer in a soup kitchen to make your life worthwhile or better yet
    ask your parents to teach you some manners.

  • SJS

    @ponytail: *hugs you* I hate it when people who are nothing but selfish bash those who do good things. I’m volunteering with Habitat for Humanity this weekend and seeing Joe do this just made me very happy. People like the Jonas Brothers inspire me and plenty of others to give more. I think it’s awesome.

  • cindy

    lol in one of the pics there is this girl taking a pic of him running
    and she is running too

    its just funny how she is running around joe and she has her phone out to take a pic of him running lol

    gosh girls =]

    anyways i would go up to him and talk to him
    well…if he lets me lol
    even if im like this..

    so( huhuhuh* out of breath*)joe hows( huhuhuh* out of breath*) it ( huhuhuh* out of breath*) going?( huhuhuh* out of breath*)

    ( huhuhuh* out of breath*)oh cool ( huhuhuh* out of breath*) im a big( huhuhuh* out of breath*) oh gosh um…fan lol( huhuhuh* out of breath*) whats your fav song( huhuhuh* out of breath*)

    and so on lol

  • sherydan

    oh joe, your muscle looks so hott and you can kick trace in 5 minutes!

  • Courtney

    Joe is My hero!


  • ponytail

    Hugs to you too,SJS. God Bless You for supporting and volunteering
    with Habitat for Humanity because it is a good cause.The Jonas
    Brothers inspire me too. In my opinion, they are great musicians but more importantly they are good people .I am so happy and proud that
    Joe supported the Special Olympics.And you are right, “it is always better to give than to receive”.

  • jojo

  • Sonia

    Joe Jonas, you are an inspiration!! I am so proud of Joe for taking time out of his busy schedule to do charity work. He had a concert that same night. I love him from the bottom of my heart and god bless the whole Jonas family. Oh and HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOE!! I LOVE YOU!!

    Wow his muscles are huge…he can kick Trace’s ass.

  • eldina

    Why is everyone hating
    on this sort of thing
    who cares who made him do it disney or he just decided to either way he did a great thing.
    I hope they continue doing this kind of stuff .

  • leslie

    I love you Joe!!!!!!!

  • urMusic Gigi
