I would like to take this time to thank all of the volunteers, board members and staff at Special Olympics for a fantastic 2017. If it was not for you, our coaches and supporters, we would not be able to compete in the sports we love to do throughout the year. Very importantly, I would like to thank all of our fundraisers, especially our law enforcement officers, for all that they do throughout the state; you make it possible for all the Athletes in Special Olympics to go out and show what we can do! I hope you have a very merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.
 I hope to see you all in 2018!
 
Sincerely,
Kevin Brown
Ambassador,Athlete Representative Board of Directors
