SPEAKER:  Dennis DeJesus - Chief Executive Officer, The RI Special Olympics.

Been Director for 5 years.

Offer Olympic training year round in 25 different sports.

1,600 athletic events annually.

3,000 athletes currently.

Founded by Eunice Kennedy Shriver in 1968.

1968: 1,000 Special Olympians took part in the Chicago games.

Today, 4 million athletes worldwide in 140 countries.

Today, 36 RI high schools have Special Olympics volleyball & basketball in the school.  Play with volunteers.

Sports is a means to an end.  The means to an opportunity.  Want respect. Inclusion.

Three different types of sports:
1. Traditional – only Special Olympians competing
2. Project Unified – Special Olympians compete along with a partner
3. Project Unified in the high schools

In RI, no athletes pay to participate.  Relay on the tremendous support of companies, foundations & individuals.

Would like to see better opportunities.

Teaching public speaking; how to sit on a Board of Directors; how to ask for donations.

No age limit with Special Olympics.  Have bowling, bocce & croquet for older folks.

Consider volunteering at Summer Games at URI.
