A 55-member Special Olympics delegation from Washington State, including 40 athletes, are heading to New Jersey to compete on the national level, after wrapping up another tremendous Summer Games at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, where more than 2,800 athletes competed in a number of events, winning medals and making friends.
Beth Wojick, President and CEO of Special Olympics Washington, joined Margaret today to talk more about the State and National Summer Games, as well as the results of their inaugural 'Dream House' raffle fundraiser.
We also met Mallory Smith and Tyler May, two of the athletes who will represent our state at the Special Olympics 2014 USA Games, which take place June 14 - 21 in Princeton, New Jersey. Mallory and Tyler will compete in golf (Tyler has an 8 handicap!). We also met one of the Golf Team's coaches, Marcus King. We'll keep tabs on Mallory, Tyler and all of our state's Special Olympians as they compete, and update you on their progress.
