I am like everyone else. I can do anything!

By David Stoeckel

R is for Run!

My name is David Stoeckel and I am an athlete for Special Olympics. I run in my walker and I win the race. I have graduated from high school and I can do many things. Do not call me that R word because because I am smart and in my life I can do anything. R is for run.

About David Stoeckel: I am a 22 year old. In the past I was involved with Special Olympics bowling and our school district Special Olympics Track & Field day.
