Bio: Wanda Coleman

By Rebecca Payne

Special Olympics Colorado has made all the difference in Conor's life.  When he joined Special Olympics Colorado basketball in 2002, he had a group of friends for the first time in his life.  By rotating through the various sports offered by Special Olympics (over several years) he found his 'place' on the tennis court.  He was fortunate to represent Colorado at the Special Olympic National Games in Tennis, 2010.  

The present opportunity with the Rapids and Kroenke Sports to play soccer and travel has meant so much to Conor and to us as a family.  It has been a positive and affirming experience in every way.  He feels respected and important by these organizations. 

All of this would not be possible without Special Olympics Colorado.  Thank you for giving these kids the chance to shine.
