Testimonials about Special Olympics
It is a very rewarding experience to be a coach, especially volunteering for Special Olympics. I am passionate about sports and fitness, and when I am working with these hard-working, motivated athletes, there is an unbreakable bond that forms between us. I love seeing them learn, grow, and excel.
