Over the past 4 years, I have grown to love to run. I have run over 5 half marathons and numerous other races. Running has truly become a passion for me. Throughout my running career, I have also been a Special Education Teacher and recently a Behavior Analyst.
As I have grown in my career, I have learned the importance of inclusion. I truly believe that everyone, no matter what their ability or disability should be allowed to be included in all aspects of life.
When I found the Special Olympics team, I thought it would be perfect for me! My younger cousin has Down Syndrome and loves to participate in the Special Olympics, as well as other adaptive sports. I thought this would be a great chance for me to do soemthing I love, while helping out someone I love.
Please consider donating to give people like my cousin the ability to do what they love!
