Law Enforcement testimonial

Special Olympics has opened my eyes to the capabilities of those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. I have met the best human beings associated with Special Olympics, from the athletes, and Special Olympic Volunteers, to the members of Law Enforcement who are involved with the Law Enforcement Torch Run. Special Olympics is the primary reason I stayed on as a Reserve Police Officer, after retirement, to be involved with this great organization.
