April 26, 2014, Cleveland, Tennessee
I had the privilege of participating in my local Special Olympics on April 26th. What a wonderful day this was! As Ms. Wheelchair Tennessee, I was able to participate in the ribbon ceremony after each event. To see these athletes stand on the podium and accept their awards was such an amazing experience. I met so many sweet people who I will never forget!
Thank you so much to the Cleveland Civitan Club for inviting me to participate. This is an organization that I plan on becoming involved with in the near future. Also, I can promise you this will not be my last Special Olympics! From here on out I plan on being a volunteer each year and experiencing the wonderful feeling of watching these amazing people overcome their disabilities and standing on those podiums accepting their awards. I am so honored to be an advocate for every single one of them!
