Special Olympics Ontario is an organization whose impact on the lives of those with intellectual disabilities is unparalleled. Through active participation in sport, Special Olympics athletes develop confidence in their abilities, which carries through to all aspects of their lives. They learn to make and maintain meaningful relationships, as they become friends with other athletes, coaches, and families. All who have been involved with supporting Special Olympics have witnessed the joy and spirit of these amazing athletes.

On Saturday, February 18th, Councillor Jennifer Innis and i took the Plunge into the icy waters with our friend Jason Scorcia, who challenged us to go with him. We were of course up to the challenge and had a great time! Thanks to Peel Regional Police for organizing it and to Jennifer and Jason for taking the Plunge with me!

Learn more about the Special Olympics and especially how you can sponsor an athlete.
