Nick Zweerink

In September, Nick completed his 1000th consecutive day of running. Snow, rain, extreme summer temperatures and even vacations didn't stop him - and he's still going! 

Nick sees the benefits to his run streak beyond just the physical. "I wouldn’t be doing it if I had not been a Special Olympics athlete first. But I don't just do it for my physical health, I also do it for my mental health. I have found it has made me smarter by thinking things through. It has helped me have a better memory, and it has helped me focus more."
