I wanted to extend my condolences to the Kennedy Schriver Family of the passing of a woman that so inspired me that I committed more than 30 years to Special Olympics.
I was 12 years old when I first volunteered for Special Olympics. After hearing a speech given by Eunice I spent the next 30 years volunteering and preaching the positives of Special Olympics. I am proud to say that Special Olympics and the athletes involved have give back to me 1000 fold more than I have ever given to them.
This is a very sad day for me, the world have lost a true hero and Eunice will be surely missed but never forgotten. Thank You Eunice for making the world a better place for those individuals with Intellectual Disabilities!
