Hey there this is Leslie Kolovich, and I had the honor of talking with Special Olympic coach Ruth Holland and two of her athletes Jennifer Averette and Linnea Edwards from Key West Florida. These three ladies are so inspirational! Ruth talks about the upcoming First Annul SUP Invitational Special Olympics event scheduled for October 14, 2012 in Key West Florida. This Stand Up Paddle Event is designed to provide ALL qualifying Special Olympic Athletes in the State of Florida an opportunity to compete with each other according to Florida Special Olympic SUP guidelines.
I was totally touched by the passion and enthusiasm both of these athletes have for the sport of Stand Up Paddle. You will enjoy listening to this heartfelt conversation with Ruth who has spent countless hours helping to organize this event. Like any worthwhile program that is run by volunteers, they need your assistance!
If you can help in any way, sponsorships, donations for raffles, equipment for athletes, and as always money is greatly appreciated. In this podcast, you will hear how much this program means to these athletes! Please visit specialolympicsmonroe.org for more details and to make a donation to the program.
