Unified on the Court in North Carolina

By Rebecca Ralston

Energy was high and the competition was fierce as students from the University of North Carolina, along with Special Olympics athletes from Orange County, took on the Duke Blue Devils and local Durham County athletes in the first Special Olympics Unified Sports basketball game.View Story Energy was high and the competition was fierce as students from the University of North Carolina, along with Special Olympics athletes from Orange County, took on the Duke Blue Devils and local Durham County athletes in the first Special Olympics Unified Sports basketball game. Despite a tight game and aggressive play, the home team pulled away with the victory – the game’s final score was Duke – 42, UNC – 37. Nearly 400 students and community members came out to support the teams and shared in the energy, passion and determination of Unified Sports.

Beaucoup de discours au sujet des handicaps physiques le 26 Juillet 2012. Est-ce qu’ils ont oubliés la déficience intellectuelle ?

By David Egan

Ashley Count and David Egan at the Eisenhower Building on the ADA 22nd Birthday

Le 26 Juillet 2012, Ashley Counts et moi nous avons représenté Special Olympics International au bureau exécutif Eisenhower. Nous avons fêté le 22e anniversaire de la Loi Américaine des Personnes Handicapées avec un groupe de représentants invités par la Maison Blanche pour partager leurs réussites  et les défis de promotion et de protection des droits des personnes handicapées.View Story Le 26 Juillet 2012, Ashley Counts et moi nous avons représenté Special Olympics International au bureau exécutif Eisenhower. Nous avons fêté le 22e anniversaire de la Loi Américaine des Personnes Handicapées avec un groupe de représentants invités par la Maison Blanche pour partager leurs réussites  et les défis de promotion et de protection des droits des personnes handicapées. Nous avons écouté très attentivement chaque conférencier et ont été surpris qu'aucun d'entre eux n’a pas parlé des besoins des gens comme Ashley et moi, qui ont une déficience intellectuelle. Encouragé par Ashley, j'ai levé la main: «Je ne vous ai pas entendu parler de la déficience intellectuelle et je me demande comment elle est représenté dans l'agenda du Président." Il y avait un grand silence dans la salle. Les yeux tournés et enfin Kareem Dale a répondu que le travail est en cours avec un effort bipartite dont le sénateur Tom Harkin et le membre du Congrès Cathy McMorris Rodgers font partis. Après avoir fait la clôture de la séance, Valérie Jarret  a bavardé avec Ashley et moi. J'espère que nous avons eu de l’impact sur la session et à partir de ce moment, ils n'oublieront pas les personnes avec une déficience intellectuelle.

About David Egan:Je suis athlète Special Olympics de la zone 26 à Vienne, en Virginie, USA. J'aime Special Olympics et je suis un Messager Mondial. J'aime les sports. Je fais la natation, et je joue au tennis et ping-pong. Je joue aux tournois  partie de football,  basket-ball et softball. J'aime aussi parler de la «Révolution de Dignité» dont Tim Shriver, CEO Special Olympics est entrain de promouvoir.

Un simple récit de Basket-ball

By Will Schermerhorn

Voice Mason en blue.

À la fin de la saison, c’était l’équipe du tournois qui a bien démontrée la cohésion,  jouait bien la défense, contrôlait bien le balle, et a remporté un bon nombre de jeux.View Story  Mon fils Mason est un joueur au basket-ball de Special Olympics Virginie, USA. Mason vient de terminer sa deuxième saison. Comme je le regardais juste avant un entrainement, j'ai remarqué qu'il faisait ses exercices de dribbles sans regarder le balle, tout naturellement, et avec confiance comme n'importe quel autre garçon de l'équipe. C'était une grosse affaire pour moi. Au début, quand Mason commençait à jouer au basket, il ’était difficile pour lui de contrôler la balle; il ne pouvait pas faire durer le contrôle de la balle. Peu après, son entraîneur, Jim Worden, lui montrait comment le faire. Son équipe de petits gars de Virginie du Nord sont venus avec des diverses compétences allant des joueurs bien accomplis à ceux qui ne pouvaient pas dribbler. À la fin de la saison, c’était l’équipe du tournois qui a bien démontrée la cohésion,  jouait bien la défense, contrôlait bien le balle, et a remporté un bon nombre de jeux. La confiance et l'équilibre que Mason démontrait quand il faisait son chemin dans la cour de basket était un sentiment que je n'aurais jamais imaginés sentir si je ne l’avait pas vu de première main. 

About Will Schermerhorn:Je suis le père d'un athlète Special Olympics, et je travaille également au siège de Special Olympics à Washington, DC.
