Keene Parks & Recreation
Bowling, basketball and bocce
Becky started in Special Olympics when she was just four years old! Becky participated in the Young Athletes Program where children under eight learn sports skills like kicking and throwing through play. Once Becky turned eight, she started competing in Special Olympics in athletics. As Becky got older, her involvement with Special Olympics expanded to include basketball, bowling and bocce.
Special Olympics has taught Becky to work hard and give back to others, which she does through the Penguin Plunge. Becky has Plunging for 10 years! Becky travels across the state raising funds for SONH. "When I receive a donation it make me feel good," Becky said, "I am not asking for a lot of money, even three dollars is great because every little bit matters to the athletes.
Special Olympics has helped me and I feel pride in helping them!" This year Becky raised $18,555 for Special Olympics New Hampshire and plunged into the Atlantic Ocean wearing her famous penguin suit!
"Special Olympics has brought so much happiness to my life. Now it is my turn to help Special Olympics be successful so that new athletes can enjoy it."
