In the Running

Boise is in the running to host the 2009 Special Olympics World Winter Games.

This is HUGE news for Idaho. Boise, who currently hosts the Idaho Special Olympics Fall Games, will be examined for potential this week by a SO official.

I have volunteered in several capacities for Special Olympics of Idaho since I was twelve. As a volunteer, junior coach, junior coach coordinator, and coach I have had the wonderful opportunity to see this great organization evolve. Special Olympics has come a long way since it was created by Sergeant and Eunice Shriver.

I wish Boise the best of luck this week as it contends with Reno, Nevada and two European cities.
