Avril Lavigne has announced that she has written a song called “Fly” for The Avril Lavigne Foundation to support Special Olympics. The song will be released in advance of the Special Olympics World Summer Games, which will take place July 25-August 2, 2015. In September 2014, as part of the Avril Lavigne Foundation’s support for Special Olympics, Lavigne launched a campaign for her 30th birthday, which raised funds to support 30 Special Olympics Athletes competing in the 2015 Special Olympics World Games. The athletes supported by the campaign will come from five different countries and will be announced in February. During her 2014 World Tour, Lavigne visited a local Special Olympics program in Shanghai to learn more about their programs, and met with and invited more than 200 Special Olympics athletes to her shows in 14 countries.
