Running 26.2 miles in the Boston Marathon to Help Children with Disabilities!

For the past seven years I have helped coach The Special Olympics Soccer and Basketball teams for Newburyport High School. During this time, I have made some very special connections and memories with numerous young athletes. Some years we win the gold and others we come up short, but every year the kids work extremely hard and come out winners for participating in such a rewarding program. I have witnessed firsthand how sports provide young people with an outlet from their everyday lives. Special Olympics, in particular, grants students of all walks of life the opportunity to interact and create friendships with kids they would not otherwise meet. Camp Shriver is where Special Olympics originated. Their mission statement says it all…”Camp Shriver’s mission is to use sports as a vehicle to bring children with and without disabilities together so that they have the opportunity to improve their motor skills, social skills, and self-esteem, while developing positive peer relationships and making new friends.” This organization runs all-inclusive summer sports camps across the country for low income youths with and without intellectual and/or developmental disabilities.
