The Extra Mile

— Points of Light Volunteer Pathway —

When Eunice Kennedy Shriver founded Special Olympics in 1968, she envisioned a program of athletic competition for people with mental and developmental disabilities that sidelined prejudice and substituted opportunity and understanding. Through her advocacy, she has brought to millions of lives what all people deserve: A chance to experience self-worth, a chance to connect with their fellow man, a chance to live without walls.
"Special Olympics athletes are spokespersons for freedom itself — they ask for freedom to contribute, the freedom to belong, the freedom to contribute, the freedom to have a chance. And, of all values that unite and inspire us to seek a better world, no value holds a higher price than the value of freedom."
