“Special Olympics New York has provided me with many opportunities to interact with people from many different races and cultures. It has given me and my fellow athletes a place where we can prove to everyone that people with disabilities can work hard and be successful in life. It is important to me to inspire others and an honor to serve on the Board of Directors.”

Kevin joined the Special Olympics NY program when he was 8 years old and has been actively involved for 46 years, competing locally, nationally and internationally.
