Individual Giving

"Special Olympics has given our family more than we could ever give to them. Jody and I first met through working on the Special Olympics World Games in 1995...22 years later we now have four kids who also cherish their time volunteering with the swimming, tennis and bowling teams!" – Mitch Truwit
