Special Olympics

 

 

The Special Olympics is a program designed to bring intellectually challenged individuals the joy of experiencing achievement through sports. It was founded in 1968 and is active in 169 countries. It is an amazing experience to see a  young Olympian finish a race and run up to a coach with glowing eyes for a high-five.

There is nothing as important as giving self-worth – and that is exactly what the Special Olympics is about, so I encourage (strongly) that we all donate to this wonderful organization so it can continue to grow and empower those young souls. Donations may be made at: give.specialolympics.org .

I am a grandmother of three teens (1 girl and 2 boys), and a three-day-old grandson. My friend, Barb is a prolific blogger and she encouraged me to become more outgoing in my thoughts and ideas. I decided to start with a photo blog as that seems more comfortable a fit.
