Volunteer Point of View

A new State Summer Games volunteer, Kelly remarks on her recent experience: “Volunteering for the 2013 Special Olympics Louisiana State Summer Games was an experience I will never forget because I got the chance to share my volunteering experience with my family. Though I have been an avid volunteer the past two years, this year was my first time volunteering for the State Summer Games. On Friday, May 24th, my parents and I attended Opening Ceremonies at the Southeastern Louisiana University’s Strawberry Stadium to cheer on the athletes. We enjoyed great food, an awesome car show, and entertaining music by Dysfunktional Bone before the ceremony began. While the athletes were parading across the field, my Mom and I became emotional as the story of Alton Smith was told. Through Special Olympics Louisiana, Alton learned to walk and was given the opportunity to strive in athletics. Alton’s story made us all teary eyed as we watched him and his parents walk across the field. Watching Alton and his parents opened my eyes to how many great opportunities Special Olympics Louisiana has given to people across the state. Special Olympics Louisiana not only offers these opportunities to athletes, but also to volunteers who are able to share the experience with them.  As we clapped and waved our pom poms during the Opening Ceremonies, I could not help but smile and cheer louder as I myself was getting excited for the summer games to begin. I am thankful my family and I got the opportunity to share in the happiness and excitement of the games with all of the athletes and their supporters, and I hope we can continue to volunteer together as a family for many years to come.”
