I have been involved with Special Olympics only as an observer and as a contributor. Many years ago my daughter was invited by a colleague to be a partner with Special Olympics in Albuquerque. Since then, her entire family became involved as their children who were quite young in the beginning became old enough to participate. They love the enthusiasm, dedication to their sports and the sincere delight in their association with others that the athletes exhibit. The family has missed their athlete friends greatly during the Covid pandemic.
