  1. I never knew Mr and Mrs Shriver personally but I would have loved to. I did not join SO till 2000, while having an Intellectual Disibilty all my life. I have been able to say I served in the Navy, a Forrest Fire Fighter and etc with this condition. i want to move from being just an athlete in SONC to coaching and Officiating. I want to be a motivator to all athletes I interact with. I love what this program and the Shrivers have done for me. THANK YOU SO MUCH and GOD Bless
