We are delighted to welcome Simone Attard from Special Olympics Malta as our new Global Family Leader for the SOEE region. Simone recently attended the Global Family Leader Summit during the World Winter Games in Korea where she was officially appointed. The Global Family Leader Programme seeks to motivate and activate family members to be fully engaged as community builders and to support the expansion of the Young Athletes programme by 100% in every region by 2015. Simone is an integral part of the Special Olympics Malta team and is very involved with their Healthy Athlete Programme, in particular during the National Games in 2012. She is also involved with family outreach and the Young Athletes Programme.
