On September 24th, people around the world will participate in sports activities to honor the spirit and legacy of the remarkable founder of Special Olympics, Eunice Kennedy Shriver.

Today, four million athletes take part in sporting activities because one woman opened her heart, mind, and backyard and allowed people with intellectual disabilities to participate in activities so many people take for granted. To say Eunice Kennedy Shriver was a visionary is an understatement.

Remarkable. Selfless. Ground breaking. Life changing for millions. Just a few words that describe this woman’s actions.

The power of one.
