"My son was a participant at the camp. He has very high functioning autism. He hasn’t stopped talking about it since he got home. It is an experience that he won’t forget. You cannot understand what this meant to him. This was a dream come true for my son."
PARENT OF PARTICIPANT
"I volunteered at a bunch of Special Olympics both in Ohio and here in the desert. The experience is beyond words... needless to say, I'm pretty sure I got as much out of it as the participants did!!! I'm not sure why, but these events always seemed to be on the dustiest day in either state because I always left with watery eyes."
"Seeing this was honestly one of my proudest moments as a Buckeye fan. Special needs of all types have always held a special place in my heart. It is so awesome to see the team reaching out and giving these people a day they will NEVER forget. I am sure that this impacts these players as well, seeing the joy and happiness of these campers would be a special experience."
