Best Special Olympics Memory Last year I was in the 200 club at bowling. That was exciting.
Hobbies and Activities I enjoy fundraising, volunteering and paying it forward in my community.. I love being a part of Community Living. I do an annual toy drive with my brother, Brett. Each Christmas we donate toys to a local charity. We purchase toys with the money we collect from the empties that family, friends and neighbours donate to us. We have been doing this for about 15 years and it is a huge event for us. We call it “Kids Without Christmas”. I also enjoy socializing and spending time with my friends and family.
Message to Sponsors Thank you so very much. This is my first time participating in an event like this. Thank you for the opportunity. I very much appreciate all you do to make this happen for myself and all the other athletes…I’m so excited!
