2015 Special Olympics
Posted on 08/06/2015
The 2015 Special Olympics was one for the books! 165 countries came together for eight days of competition. On Sunday, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum hosted more than 6,500 athletes and coaches driven not by competition but passion. For example, Pamela King participated in honor of her sister, Kristol. Pamela states, “My sister had special needs. She had Downs Syndrome, Autism and Epilepsy. When she died, I decided that I would do what I could to keep her memory alive.” To read the full story please visits, http://www.specialolympics.org/Stories/North_America/Stories_From_North_America.aspx
Participating in sports is a great way to break down barriers and truly unite communities. Sports has helped many people with intellectual disabilities discover new strengths and explore their potential. The Special Olympics is the largest organization for people with intellectual disabilities. The goal is to empower children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Way to go athletes!
