Yesterday, we had the honor of attending #SOHillDay in Washington, D.C. with an exceptional team of Unified athletes from Souderton Area High School.
Unified partners Jon Booz & Kevin Lezynski, as well as Vicki (Jon’s mom), Nancy (Kevin’s mom), Souderton’s Unified coach & PE teacher Bryan Fagan and our Chief Development Officer Tim Kerrihard made the trek to Capitol Hill to speak with various members of congress to advocate on behalf of Special Olympics athletes everywhere!
Throughout the day, they met with Rep. Madeleine Dean, Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick, Congresswoman Susan Wild, Glenn Thompson, U.S. Senator Bob Casey, Rep. Scott Perry, and Congressman John Joyce — with a special visit from Tim Shriver and John C. McGinley — telling them about their own experiences of inclusion at Souderton, as well as the importance of Unified Sports programs in communities everywhere.
We couldn’t be more proud of the important work they did in our Nation’s Capital and we were honored to have them represent Special Olympics Pennsylvania!
