“We had a BLAST!!!! EKS day was so much fun! We were all literally PLAYING UNIFIED. From the feedback from our athletes, partners, families, volunteers and coaches I could confidently say that through team work, we were unified, thanks to everyone who worked for this day, and thank you Mrs. Eunice Kennedy Shriver.”Deemah Wafa, 2011 Special Olympics Global Youth Summit, Jordan
