A Letter from Emily Bower

Emily is not only a Special Olympics athlete but a plunger too!

Dear fellow Plungers, and SOVA enthusiasts,

Thank you so much for all you have done so far for the SOVA mission! Without fans like you, many things wouldn’t be possible.

Because of you athletes like me, are not only able to compete in sports but are able to become agents of change in their communities too. The money you raise helps athletes build confidence through leadership opportunities, it helps them become healthier through programs that Special Olympics builds, and it allows them to make friends with all kinds of people.

Special Olympics has helped me to do so many things and without it, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. Again, Thank you so much for everything your doing! You are a hero us all!

Best wishes,
Emily Bower
