Best Special Olympics Memory:Katie’s first provincials was special, but returning for a second was so exciting for her. She would be thrilled to attend her third provincials. She loves competing, but also cheering on her fellow swimmers. She also remembers the opening and closing ceremonies as being a lot of fun. Also, living, being on the bus with and eating with the other athletes.

Message to Sponsors:Special Olympics has been amazing for Katie. She has been a part of the family since she was 12 yrs old (21 years old now). It allows her to have fun but be a part of a great community. We thank the many sponsors, supporters, coaches and volunteers who give so generously of their time. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
