Since 2005, I have been an active Special Olympics Unified Partner in the sport of Sailing, and I'm excited to be a first time participant at the Special Olympics World Games in March, 2019, in Abu Dhabi, UAE. I will be a crew member and partnered with Special Olympian, Tyler Dodson, who will skipper our boat throughout the competition.
Since Tyler and I attended the Special Olympics World Games Training Camp in September, held in Delaware for the 325 member USA Special Olympics World Games contingency, we continue practice in preparation for the games this March. The Sailing competition will be among 75 teams from 15 countries.
Special Olympics Sailing provides a great opportunity for many Special Olympics athletes, and I am asking for your support for this excellent program.
