Also, a big congrats to Kelli! She was inducted into the Special Olympics Hall of Fame! Way to go! 

The Special Olympics Kansas gives those with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to be an athlete. However, they also teach them about teamwork, leadership, perseverance, and sportsmanship while developing self-esteem, integrity, and character. They work year round with the participants to give them acceptance, inclusion, self-confidence and a healthy lifestyle.
