My Message

Alright folks, its that time of year again. Time to take a plunge in the ice cold Mississippi to support Special Olympics. Our son Alex is 19 yrs old with Autism. As parents we tried to put him in regular sports so that he would fit in, make friends and learn sportsmanship. This did not work for him. Our goal then became finding some way for him to be apart of a team and that’s when we found Special Olympics. So much is being taught through Special Olympics like basketball, soccer, volleyball, track & field and so much more. We finally found a place for Alex to fit in and be himself. The athletes have fun and show respect for one another. Supporting each other in every way and learning can achieve if he tries. Special Olympics gives him the confidence that he can be athletic and successful in sports and in life.

Please support us in raising money for Special Olympics. Without your support, this program would not exist and people like Alex would not have a chance to excel in todays life challenges. In return Rio & Dvonte (my nephew) will brave the icy cold waters of the Mighty Mississippi River for the Polar Bear Plunge on February 4, 2017. Any monetary donation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support.
