Louis M

Louis has participated in Special Olympics for more than 10 years and has competed in track & field, floor hockey, soccer, flag football, basketball, softball and swimming. He says that Special Olympics gave him an opportunity to play sports because he never played in high school. “Special Olympics has dramatically changed my life. It lets me focus on positive and good things and helps me keep my mind off of the loved ones that I miss.” Louis is an active supporter of Special Olympics fundraisers, including Polar Plunge and Tip-a-Cop events, and enjoys spending time with his girlfriend, Raechel. He was honored by the San Jose Sports Hall of Fame in 2022.

Louis on going to the USA Games:

“Attending the 2022 USA Games means everything to me. I never thought that I would ever make it. I work so hard. It’s a dream come true!”
