The Connecticut Special Olympics
 
CHANGING ATTITUDES... CHANGING LIVES
When even one Special Olympics athlete can compete, when even one can know the unbounded joy of a great personal effort, we rejoice both in the specific event and in the life-changing example it sets for others.
-Timothy P. Shriver, Ph.D., Chairman of the Board, Special Olympics
