Today, I would like to share a guest blog post that was authored by Special Olympics Arizona Athlete, Carla Simon. Through her words, Carla is able to shed light on how the programs at Special Olympics can impact the lives of our athletes everywhere. I was excited to find out that this blog post was originally published on The World of Special Olympics Blog, and it is my pleasure to have the opportunity to share it with the Special Olympics Arizona community as well. Carla is currently in New Jersey competing with Team Arizona in the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games. With two Silver medals and one Gold received so far, her accomplishments truly speak to what dedication and hard-work can achieve. Make sure you check back in a few weeks for a full re-cap on the accomplishments of Team Arizona in the 2014 USA Games!
