Message to SponsorsI would not be here talking to you, or really talking to anyone, if it were not for Special Olympics.  One of the biggest things that motivated me–and motivates a lot of athletes–to improve is the dream of getting to compete in Provincials.  So, to all of our amazing sponsors, you’re not just giving me and other people with Intellectual Disabilities a chance to show the world how much we are capable of, you’re giving us a reason to test those limits in the first place. Thanks a million.
