A Letter from Special Olympics Turkey

Enlarge this Letter

Dear Tim:

It is with great sadness that I received the news of the passing of Mrs Eunice Kennedy Shriver, not only the founder of the Special Olympics movement but also an outstanding leader in the world-wide struggle to improve and enhance the lives of individuals with intellectual disability.

I personally have shared many precious moments with your mother which will linger in my memory forever.

Please accept my sincere condolences for your mother's loss on behalf of our board of directors, family members, volunteers and especially her special athletes living in this country.


Dilek Sabanci

Honorary President
