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.

Teams competing in the NAIA Division II Championships show what it means to give back, hosting a skills clinic for Special Olympics athletes prior to their own competition!

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.

In celebration of only 100 days left until the 2011 Special Olympics World Summer Games in Athens, Greece, check out this great promo for the games.

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.
