BENEFITING: OHIO SPECIAL OLYMPICS
WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT: It cost $5,000.00 to send one athlete to the Special Olympics World Games! It is an experience Sheryl will not forget, and she is excited to represent Hamilton County! Please consider making a donation with words of encouragement to Sheryl, and help the Special Olympics Hamilton County with her traveling expenses at the World Games!
ALL MONEY MUST BE RAISED LOCALLY TO SEND LOCAL ATHLETES TO THE WORLD GAMES, WE DO NOT RECIEVE FUNDING FROM THE STATE OF NATIONAL SPECIAL OLYMPICS.
Sheryl works 20 hours a week at Kroger and on her Friday’s off she helps around the Special Olympic Hamilton County office, and trains for the World Games. She walks the Office building stairs for exercise, and even practices Bocce Ball in the halls. Sheryl has competed in the Special Olympics for 35 years and enjoys all of the opportunities SOHC has provided her.
What part of the World Games are you most looking forward too?
Sheryl- I am happy to meet new people and see other teams compete.
Who is your biggest hero and why?
Sheryl- My biggest hero is Pat Summit because she is a good coach and tough on her team. Go VOLS!
Why are the Special Olympics important to you?
Sheryl- It makes me happy and its fun! I am so glad to represent Ohio in the World Games.
