A Letter from Special Olympics Bharat Maharashtra

Mrs. Shriver took an initiative and a responsibility of planting a seed--SPECIAL OLYMPICS. She changed the lives of those with intellectual disabilities & gave them an opportunity to shine. For more than 40 years, the life and work of Eunice Kennedy Shriver has inspired millions to think differently.

A great woman that was filled with love and compassion. A true Humanitarian. May her spirit live on forever in the hearts of her special athletes. Every time we look into the face of a child with a disability, we will be reminded of what a difference one person, with a dream can make.

Your torch will burn forever in the smile of every challenged athlete.

Thank you Mrs. Shriver for showing us the way. May God bless you and your family.

Mrs. Eunice Kennedy Shriver passed away on 11th August 2009.

Special Olympics Bharat Maharashtra requests you to observe one minute silence/say a prayer on 11th September 2009 in her memory.
