Hello from Special Olympics Vermont!

Thank you for all of your support in 2012.  We are set to record the largest number of athletes participating, coupled with more training and personal development opportunities than ever before.  Our work involves so many resources and we are thankful to have the support of thousands of Vermonters.

Over the past 18 weeks I’ve had the pleasure of training with three athletes, Larry Strobridge, Josh Beaupre and Leah Boardman, who were selected to represent Vermont and Team USA at the 2013 Special Olympics World Winter Games in the Republic of Korea.  During that time, I witnessed incredible growth for myself personally as well as with each of the athletes.  While there were many highlights, it was during our timed, one mile trail run with only the illumination of headlamps, when I realized the true power and determination of our athletes.

This is one small story and I’m certain that each of you has witnessed similar experiences.  With your continued support, these opportunities become more plentiful and meaningful.  I hope that you’ll consider making a year-end donation to Special Olympics Vermont.

Cheers to a healthy and happy holiday season.  See you all in 2013.
