A few years ago I didn't give Special Olympics much thought. I knew about the organization but that was about it. Then, Norah came along and surprised us with an extra chromosome, which is pretty amazing! Fast forward a bit and my hubby now works for SO and Norah is an athlete in the Active Start program. Now, I know first hand the positive impact Special Olympics has on individuals. It's amazing to see (whether it be at events, training, workshops) the unity, friendships, sportsmanship, inclusion, perseverance and the list could go on, between athletes, coaches, caregivers and staff. I am thankful that I am part of that community; a community with strong values that empowers all of it's athletes. I am happy to say Special Olympics is near and dear to my heart and will continue to be. On August 27, I am participating in an all-day fundraiser called Marathon of Sport. All funds raised at the event are donated to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation. Throughout the day, I will be competing alongside local Special Olympics athletes in a variety of sports such as basketball, soccer, ultimate frisbee, bench ball, volleyball and football.
