What does attending USA Games mean to you? I was first inspired by Special Olympics athletes in high school, where I saw a genuine pursuit for joy in sport. Since then, I’ve always volunteered as a coach and gotten involved, especially with the younger generation. They aren’t always consumed by the need to perform at a certain level, but simply enjoy the craft of their respective sport.
How has Special Olympics changed your life? I’ve come to appreciate all that our athletes can do and how it changes lives and becomes part of their (and my) life. I love watching the progression of our athletes.
