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.

I enjoy volunteering for Special Olympics because I like to teach the athletes how to play the game and see them play the game and have fun doing it.
