Mrs. Treasure Valley Sonya Hoadley attended the Special Olympic Winter Games Festivities. Here is what Sonya had to say: My sister, mother, nephew, and I were so blessed by our visit to the Special Olympics playground! We mingled with athletes and fans and even recorded a video to show our support of all of the amazing athletes. The Special Olympics were founded in 1968 by J.F.K.'s sister and were modeled after the World Olympics. These games are just one more example of how setting a goal and working hard for it can stretch you beyond your wildest dreams. The Special Olympics now serve more than 1 million athletes in over 140 countries! Learn more at their official website: www.specialolympics.org. Thanks to everyone who has shown their love and support of this great event. Yet another reason I am SO PROUD to call the amazing state of IDAHO my home!
