Special Olympics Washington offers thousands of young athletes opportunities to train, compete and share their skills and build bonds of friendship around the world. The organization relies on community support to help provide the programs that benefit so many young people and their families. A unique fundraiser offers raffle tickets to win a variety of prizes, like luxury cars, cash and a $5 million, 10,000 square foot mansion on Lake Sammamish.
Beth Wocick, CEO of Special Olympics Washington and Mallory Smith, a Special Olympics athlete and World Games medalist, joined Margaret to talk more about how Special Olympics celebrates athletes and communities. Mallory shared her experience as a competitor at the Special Olympics World Games in Athens, Greece in 2011, where she won two bronze medals and a sixth place ribbon in several cycling events. Mallory was also celebrated as the 2012 Coca Cola Special Olympics Washington Athlete of the Year. Beth also explained how the "Dream House Raffle" works.
