Special Olympics has been such a blessing to our family. Giving our son a chance to shine in a venue unlike other sports competitions. They teach acceptance yet to win on an individual basis. I have seen sportsmanship like no other. My daughter has even joined the unified sports where a certain number of students are joined by Special Olympians and they play a sport together. From volleyball to tennis to basketball, they are all there together playing hand in hand and looking out for each other.
We have been more than just a volunteer, it has become family.
