Special Olympics Chairman Selected to Oprah’s “SuperSoul 100” List

Dr. Timothy Sh230x300-Tim-Shriver.jpgriver, Chairman of Special Olympics, has been recognized by the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) and announced as one of their “SuperSoul 100,” a group of 100 trailblazers whose vision and life’s work are bringing a higher level of consciousness to the world around them and encouraging others to do the same.
Inspired by OWN’s series “SuperSoul Sunday,” featuring Winfrey’s thought-provoking conversations with top thinkers, the “SuperSoul 100” list recognizes remarkable individuals in five categories: Soul Creatives, Soul Entrepreneurs, Soul Givers, Soul Igniters, and Soul Teachers. The SuperSoul 100 list brings together members that span all ages, ethnic groups, industries, and faiths. These influencers are inspiring others to live out an authentic life and use their platforms to help contribute to society and inspire others. Dr. Shriver, named a “Soul Giver,” joins his sister Maria Shriver, Deepak Chopra, Arianna Huffington, Common, Imagine Dragons, Jesse Williams, Misty Copeland, Jeff Weiner, Sophia Bush, Amy Purdy and many others.
“I am honored to be selected to Oprah’s SuperSoul 100 list and to be in the company of so many extraordinary thinkers, leaders, and givers. But I’m more honored to have been a student of the athletes of Special Olympics and of the high school students of New Haven who have given me a world class course on how to live fully alive always focused on what matters most,” said Dr. Shriver.
