This past June at the ShopRite LPGA Classic, Special Olympics named I.K. Kim, a three-time LPGA winner, as a Special Olympics Ambassador for golf. She will help promote the game within Special Olympics, while also promoting inclusion.
“As we continue to look for opportunities for our athletes to achieve their personal best, we are thrilled to have I.K. Kim join the Special Olympics family. Her dedication, drive and generous spirit are a lesson to young people around the world and we are thrilled to have her represent our movement” said Timothy Shriver, Chairman and CEO Special Olympics.
“I have been talking to Special Olympics for the past year and this seemed to be a great fit for me,” Kim said. “I was looking for an organization that I truly believed in and could continue to work with on a long-term basis. I didn’t want to just give the money away. I am really looking forward to joining the Special Olympics family as an Ambassador,” said Kim.
