Helping a great cause

Being able to help a great organization with a incredible cause was an amazing experience. I produced a video for them by filming different activities the athletes and volunteers were doing outside. It was a challenge to make sure I covered all the events and took high quality film with good lighting and sound.

Great way to give back to the community

I was a volunteer for the Special Olympics for one season of soccer. I think it is important to give back to the community and help those that are less fortunate.

Coaching these athletes is one of the most rewarding things I do. They get so excited to see their coaches for practice and work so hard. We meet once a week to practice and they have games often.

Give back to your community

working in the special olympics is not for those who want to take pictures and feel like a good person. It's something to do when you truly LOVE what you are doing. I personally loved it. I loved my friends. I loved the people I worked with. I loved my entire experience.

Working the Polar Plunge

I helped work the Polar plunge in Chicago one year, and it was all I could have ever asked for. My co workers were amazing, as well as the customers. It was a fantastic experience and I would do it again.

Rewarding service

Special Olympics offers so much diversity to those who normally would not be allowed to participate in sporting activities. it is a prideful job to obtain.

A truly beautiful experience

Some of the most gratifying and warm-hearted moments of my life were when I was allowed the opportunity to volunteer at multiple Special Olympics events around the valley. Very well put together and honestly just such a great time for the family and the athletes involved.
