A True Family Affair: Siblings Become Unified Partners

Jared Vinansky took hold of his bowling ball and slowly walked toward the end of the lane. The air was thick with tension, nerves and excitement, but Jared was focused. His arm swung backward with ball in tow and with a flick of the wrist, the ball began rolling down the lane.

One pin down, then four pins, seven pins, and it’s a strike!

The crowd cheered loudly for Jared, but he heard his parents the most clearly as he stepped forward to see his Special Olympics Unified Partner beaming at him. He challenged her to get a strike, too. They may be Unified Partners, but they still compete with each other. After all, that’s what brothers and sisters do.
