Derry Recreation Timberwolves
Athletics, Basketball, Bowling & Powerlifting
Cory Remillard loves to compete. Cory will be representing Team New Hampshire at the 2018 USA Games in Seattle, Washington. He also participated in the 2014 USA Games in New Jersey where he brought home four gold medals in powerlifting. Cory started competing in Special Olympics in 1998 at the New York State Games and his father remembered that Cory had gotten scared when they shot the starting gun in his first ever race. He did not know what was going on, so he jumped into the nearest Army cadet’s arms. After a moment, Cory realized everything was ok and started heading down the track, waving to the croud as he went. Cory ended up finishing last in his race, but he didn't mind. From that point on, Cory and his family “fell in love with Special Olympics."
Cory has been involved with Special Olympics for 20 years and when asked what is his favorite thing about the Special Olympics, the answer is simple, everything. If you even mention anything about Special Olympics he just perks up. Cory loves the competition, the people, the friendships; he just enjoys being a part of the organization that has given him so much in the past 20 years.
Cory Remillard is full of energy and he enjoys representing his state and hopes to represent his country at a World Games someday. He has a big heart and loves to win. Cory and his father are looking forward to the USA Games and Cory cannot wait to be on the stage again doing what he loves.
