Eunice Kennedy Shriver in Honduras

Eunice Kennedy Shriver and Florencia Soto Ruiz
After Hurricane Mitch in Honduras, we were visited by Eunice Kennedy Shriver, in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. She came to motivate our athletes to attend the World Games that will take place in North Carolina. She took a photo with athletes Florencia Soto Ruiz, Nahum Diaz and Jose Hernandez and wife of U.S. Ambassador to Honduras Gwen. Celebrate the day remembering that great woman who left us this legacy.
