Sometimes we all need a little reality check every now and again to keep us humble and thankful for the life we lead. Every year, I volunteer with my teammates at a Special Olympics swim meet and it has become a cause very important to me.
The Special Olympic athletes work so hard and achieve great accomplishments like many other athletes despite their disabilities. Seeing the swimmers compete is such a humbling experience because they show how adversity can be overcome.
Athletes like them inspire me and keep me grounded whenever I think my life gets overwhelming. Please check out my video slideshow of this year’s Special Olympics swim meet.
