|Best Special Olympics Memory||I always like a challenge and the SOO has given me the opportunity to challenge myself. I am a team player. My most memorable Olympics were in Kingston, ON where my family and some friends were able to be there to support me. I do my best and I am strong in my attempts.|
|Hobbies and Activities||I work at Tim Horton’s Monday to Friday from 2pm – 5pm and that is something that I take very seriously. It is important to me as it allows me to be a contributing member of society.|
I also attend a social group called Friday Friends and have been there for about 20 years. I have many friends there.
I have a girlfriend who is also participating in the Olympics for swimming. We have been together for upwards of 10 years.
I have a 4-year-old nephew and a 6-month-old niece who are also important to me. I am hoping to teach them that sticking with something and doing the best you can is rewarding.
|Message to Sponsors||Thank you to everyone who sponsors and or support the SOO. Thank you for helping me to be the man that I am today. I am grateful to all of you and to the many volunteers who also give of themselves. Without all of you, we wouldn’t be here today.|
