Special Olympics Tanzania mourns the passing of Mrs Agnes Allily.

By Mr Frank Macha

The Special Olympics Africa region joins our family in Tanzania in mourning the passing of Mrs Agnes Allily, Vice Chairperson of the Board of Directors for Special Olympics Tanzania. The region and Tanzania have lost a great inspiration and a true leader who helped the Special Olympics Tanzania program to reach new heights. Mrs Allily was instrumental in fundraising and ensuring that the Tanzania team was able to participate in the 2011 Special Olympics World Summer Games in Greece creating a life changing opportunity for the athletes. Her determination and tenacious spirit will continue to inspire us all at Special Olympics. Our sincerest condolences to the Allily family.
