Our son Caleb has been involved with Special Olympics Florida since he was just 3, beginning with the Young Athletes Program, and joining the sports side of things when he turned 8. Now 14, he’s participated in nine different sports through the years, developing his skills and making friendships with people of all abilities along the way. He found his passion in triathlon last year and is very excited to have been selected to participate in the 2022 Special Olympics USA Games this June. He is training hard to be ready!

We love that Special Olympics Florida advocates for better health care and helps our athletes learn to live healthier lives, as well. We are excited for the future when Caleb has the opportunity to become part of the Athlete Leadership program, and of course, we love the focus on inclusion across the board. Thank you SOFL for all you do for our athletes and their families!

I feel accepted, and I feel that I'm not alone anymore. I had been bullied …
