Day of Awareness – Spread the Word

Almost 9 years ago, I became the parent of a child with special needs.  I also became an advocate for the acceptance and inclusion of all people living with intellectual disabilities.

1 year ago, I put this bracelet on and everything changed.

ImageThrough the Special Olympics’ “Spread the Word to End the Word” campaign, I found a platform on which to stand and share my passion.  

Today has been a celebration for our family.  A celebration we have enjoyed sharing with our community.  A community that has surrounded us with so much love and support.

And so we have spent the day saying “thank you” to those that have embraced our mission as well as spending time with new friends and encouraging them to join the revolution.

Here are some of the highlights from our day . . .
