Going for the Gold
Our Golden Girl
Tonight is the start of the Northern California Special Olympics Summer Games. Our youngest is completing for the 3rd year. The photo above is from the 2008 games, when she competed in track and won 3 gold medals.
This next photo is a medals award ceremony from the 2009 games. State law enforcement officers from all over Northern California support the games, and attend the games to award the medals.
This year our girl is competing in aquatics. Sadly, the team size has been cut in half from 2 years ago because of funding problems. It is impossible to say just how wonderful the program is for the athletes and their families. I hope you will all keep your fingers crossed for the tiny Richmond Buffaloes Team, and of course, our little swimmer.
