“Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”

The Special Olympics has touched so many over the past 50+ years. They have provided opportunities so their athletes can be brave and courageous in reaching for the stars no matter their handicap. Tim has been involved on and off throughout the past 50+ years. He started in Eunice Shriver’s backyard a couple of years before the first official Special Olympic Games. He competed in swimming and got first place. In Florida, he received the Gold Medal at the State Games for bowling. In recent years he has bowled, played bocce, competed in competitions, and has enjoyed the dances to name a few of the numerous activities that the Special Olympics provides.
