The Experience of Being a Special Olympics Athlete

The Experience of Being a Special Olympics Athlete: by Tiffany Hebert  Tiffany Hebert on plane to DC

I lie here thinking about my experience of being a Special Olympics athlete. My experience has been great. My memory is filled with emotions and pictures of me finishing events, maybe not always in first place but still very excited and happy that I finished my event. My next major event was my trip to Washington, DC. I was so excited and helped Special Olympics continue its blessed outreach to our wonderful athletes as we inspire athletes not to give up and to keep going. We can do anything that we put our minds too. Our oath says: “Let me win and if I can not win let me be brave in the attempt.” This oath is what our athletes live by in everyday life. Every bad day this rings out in our mind that we can be brave and still have the courage to get though and finish no matter what. Who inspires you to greatness in everyday life?
