International, award-winning musician and philanthropist Avril Lavigne debuted her song “Fly” to benefit Special Olympics today.  

The song is exclusively available today, April 16, on iTunes (http://smarturl.it/avrilflysingle) 100 days before the start of the 2015 Special Olympics World Games, which will be the world’s largest sporting event in 2015, and will take place July 25-August 2 in Los Angeles. The inspiring music video for “Fly,” debuted this morning on ABC’s Good Morning America, featuring Avril Lavigne and Special Olympics athletes from around the world.

“This song means a lot to me personally,” says Lavigne. “It is inspired by the many young people I’ve met throughout my work with my Foundation. They pursue their dreams no matter what obstacles they face.” The Avril Lavigne Foundation provides support to children and youth living with serious illnesses or disabilities. “Special Olympics’ mission is to unleash the human spirit through the transformative power and joy of sports, so they’re a natural fit for this song.”

“Fly” will also be featured during Special Olympics’ first-ever Unified Relay Across America presented by Bank of America event, where over the course of 46 days, over 20,000 participants nationwide will carry the Flame of Hope to Los Angeles for the Special Olympics World Games.  The relay will kick off May 26th in Augusta, Maine; Miami, Florida; and Washington, D.C. and end on July 10th.

Lavigne co-wrote “Fly” with her husband Chad Kroeger and David Hodges.
