The Supreme Council for Sport in Africa (SCSA) learnt with sadness the passing away of Eunice Kennedy Shriver on 11 August 2009.
On behalf of the SCSA Executive committee and the entire African Sport Movement we would like to convey our deepest sympathies to her children, family members and the Special olympics family world over.
Though the Special Olympics Movement, she has left behind a legacy for love, inclusion and acceptance for which the whole world shall remember her.
Though in loss, we celebrate her life which was full of devotion and love for the less privileged of our societies.
May her Soul Rest in Eternal Peace.
