To end Betsy DeVos proposed cuts to Special Olympics Funding in the USA.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

I believe in Special Olympics.  As an Athlete who has competed and been involved in the Organisation for nearly twenty years, basically it has given me a life.  A life that I would never have had.  But to also see what it is now doing to not only the Athletes, but in particular the young people without, who are involved in our educational programs, it really gives my hope that a better more inclusive and more Unified world exists.  

We need this sort of support.  Philanthropic work is not enough.  Yes I may be an Australian, so what does this have to do with me, but this is not just about the US, but it is about people with and without disabilities who need to connect in order to discover each other.  The early evidence of this program indicates that it has massive potential to change not only the lives, but the culture of our society to a far better one.

I’m calling on all people involved in this organisation to rally up against this.  Let’s turn this into what it is, a fight for our survival.  We need to fight against this.
