LIZ ASHTON, Speed Skating

"You will have a great time and get lots of exercise and stay in shape. You get to travel, get to know great coaches, make new friends, and attend many activities throughout the year.  When you're in the Special Olympic programs you feel important, and you feel like you really belong."

DANNY PACE, Curling

"You will have fun with playing the sport you love playing and meeting new friends."

"It's so much fun! You don't have to be the best, you just have to do your best. Plus,  you get to do sports with great  athletes and make new friends."
