Four years ago I met a boy that will forever have a part of my heart. I've heard people say that it takes a special kind of person to care for children with special needs. The reality is, children with special needs inspire you to be a special kind of person.This boy altered my original course for the better and for that I am so grateful!
I work in education with children of all abilities because I was inspired by Preston. Everyday I get the opportunity to see students work to overcome academic and physical challenges. When I met Preston four years ago he wasn't a runner. This year, I was able to witnesss him as a Special Olympics torch bearer!
I am running the Hartford Half in honor of Special Olympics CT to celebreate the opportunities that they have provided to so many athletes. This will be my third SOCT race.. Please support my run and their efforts by making a donation.
