Help Us Go For Gold at the
2018 Special Olympics USA Games!
I've been selected to represent Special Olympics New York in Seattle Washington for the 2018 USA Games in Seattle on July 1st through 6th 2018.
The money we raise will go towards our trip and other expenses.
· I joined the Special Olympic Fireballs bowling league in Ithaca, NY at age 15 in 2007. Bowling has always been my most passionate sport. In 2016, I assisted in organizing a second Special Olympic bowling league at Atlas Bowl in Trumansburg, NY. This allowed friends in outlaying areas from Ithaca greater access to participate in Special Olympic bowling. Through Special Olympics, I was able to join bocce ball in 2008 and track+field in 2014. I am so proud and excited to attend my first USA games in 2018.
