“I went to the Colorado Special Olympics in Grand Junction Saturday and Sunday with my boyfriend, David, and my host home provider. I won three first place medals in swimming; one for the 15 meter floatation, one for the 15 meter unassisted, and one for the 25 meter floatation. I am dedicating these medals to people who don’t have the opportunity to compete in Special Olympics.
I started Special Olympics when I was in my teens, and it was my mom who taught me to swim. Over the years, I have won 25 different medals at Special Olympics.”
