Enlarge this Letter

Dear Tim,

On behalf of Special Olympics Shanghai, we are deeply saddened to learn about the passing of Mrs. Eunice Kennedy Shriver. Mrs. Shriver inspired all of us, Special Olympics atheltes, families, coaches and volunteers, and all mankind for her passion and devotion to bring respect and dignity to people with intellectual disability. We had graet honor to work with such an extraordinary woman and the outstanding organization she founded to bring the 2007 Special Olympics World Summer Games to Shanghai, China. The vision she created has benefited so many athletes in China and I know she will be remembered by many Chinese in their lifetime.

Our thoughts are with you and your family, and I know the best tribute we can pay to Mrs. Shriver is to continue with our commitment to serve people with intellectual disability.


Shi Derong
