Perks of Play Unified

IMG_0592

Remember SOLA athlete, Camrin Sandoz who we featured on the blog last month? He represented Special Olympics Louisiana when he traveled to Washington, DC to compete in the Quicken Loans National Pro-Am sponsored by Perfect Sense Digital.

This picture above is of Cam and professional golfer Arjun Atwal.  Once their round of golf was finished, Cam gave Arjun a Special Olympics Unified Golf Gold medal (you can see it in Arjun’s right hand in the shot).  Cam had won the medal this year at the Louisiana State Golf Tournament.  He told Arjun “I know you have won lots of money and trophies as a pro golfer but I bet you have never won a Special Olympics Gold medal.”  At first Arjun said he couldn’t accept Cam’s gold medal, but Cam quickly said, “Don’t worry I’ll win another one next year!”

Later that week, Cam went back to the golf course to watch the first round of the professional tournament.  After following Tiger, Rikki Fowler, and many other great players, Cam was insistent on finding his new best friend Arjun.  He managed to find him on the course and even watched him make birdie on 4 of his last 6 holes. Arjun spotted Cam and his family and came over to shake Cam’s hand and offer him a cold Gatorade. If you know Cam there’s nothing he likes more then free food or drinks!  Arjun reached over and told Cam that his Gold Medal was tucked away in his bag for good luck.  Cam’s quick response to this was,  “I know that’s why you got all those birdies!”  Ted Sandoz, father of Cam, was extremely touched by the  experience. He said, “When we heard Arjun tell Cam about his medal, we had tears in our eyes. The knowing that a PGA professional took the time to tell our son that the medal he worked hard to achieve had now found its place in the bottom of his Ping bag was simply the true meaning of Play Unified!”
