Best Special Olympics Memory:Kennedy loves bowling and loves when she receives a medal at our local competitions with Special Olympics! She also loves swimming and making new friends during her competitions with other cities. One of her most memorable accomplishments was winning a turkey during the Special Olympics holiday curling evening when her rock was closest to the turkey!
Hobbies and Activities:Kennedy loves to go to the movies and dancing.  She enjoys spending time with her best friend – her Dog Guide Keeley.  She especially looks forward to seeing all her friends at Special Olympics and cheering them on while they compete.
Message to Sponsors:I am thankful every day that Special Olympics programs are available in our community.  Kennedy has made so many friends through Special Olympics.  Through excellent coaching in a positive environment she has learned to compete while encouraging her teammates to excel.  She finds rewards and happiness in seeing her friends win!  All of which would not be possible without the tremendous support of the many sponsors.  I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for choosing to support Special Olympics athletes and in turn their families. The athletes have so many obstacles to overcome on a daily basis and I am in awe of their dedication and hard work at every practice and competition but to see their sense of pride at just being able to compete is heartwarming and would not be possible without you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
