A believer in Unified!

By Ray Lane

Last night I had the honor of skiing in Special Olympics Unified Sports with Paul Johnston from Delaware. We are both here in Pyeongchang, Korea attending the Special Olympics World Games this week.View Story Last night I had the honor of skiing in Special Olympics Unified Sports with Paul Johnston from Delaware. We are both here in Pyeongchang, Korea attending the Special Olympics World Games this week. Unified Sports is a fantastic way for fans like me to join in play and competition with Special Olympics athletes. I greatly enjoyed meeting Paul and getting to know him better – we had fun talking about lots of things. And we definitely bonded over the love of skiing! Upon reflection, it’s one thing to meet the athletes, give awards to the athletes, serve on the board with athletes, and cheer from the sidelines….but it’s a whole different experience when you join them on the field of play and have fun with the athletes! There is nothing like the thrill of competing together….I will long remember my time with Paul and look forward to the next time I can ski with him again.
