Last night my husband and I were invited to a dinner dedicated to fundraising for the Special Olympics. It was an extraordinary dinner, so many Special Olympic’s athletes were given sponsorships by those in attendance; one of the speakers was a Special Olympics athlete herself and she spoke so movingly about the very important role that the Special Olympics has played in her life. She gave the best speech of the entire evening, we were riveted by her story and her eloquence.

I had no idea that the Special Olympics hosts 4.4 million athletes world wide, it is a such an important organization and both my husband and I were gratified to be a part of it, even in the smallest, tiniest part.
