It’s been awhile since we’ve done a Multimedia Monday post, and while it’s not exactly Monday today, there have been so many great videos shared throughout the online community in the past few days, I just couldn’t wait until Monday to share!
First, check out a fantastic story about Middlebury College athletes who have been helping a local man feel like part of the team for the last 50 years. A must watch! Watch the ESPN video.
As many sports fans know, this week launches March Madness, the NCAA college basketball championships. Buick, a sponsor of the NCAA, has created the Human Highlights Reel which features famous NCAA athletes who have made an impact through sports. One of the seven features is a piece about Eunice Kennedy Shriver, the amazing founder of Special Olympics.
Watch the video online now or keep your eyes peeled this week for the 30-second spot during NCAA broadcasts.
Finally, the Peace Corps is celebrating its 50th Anniversary and in honor of the late Sargent Shriver, Special Olympics Chairman Tim Shriver helps to announce a new partnership between the Peace Corps and Special Olympics. Check out the press conference.
