I started participating in Special Olympics when I attended Napa High School. I am going to the post secondary program Transition 3 at NVUSD. I have been chosen to go to the World Games in LA this summer.
About 12 years ago I joined the Napa Valley Special Olympics when Cross country was offered. However,my county has seen many changes, but track and field hopefully will be here to stay.

When I went on the track, I was nervous, but I did it,
and that's the true meaning of bravery.
I was told that I can't do that because of my asthma and my disabilities I wouldn't survive. When I was 16 I started competing in track and field in Special Olympics in high school. Special Olympics Pennsylvania taught me to believe in myself.

Last year, I met Mary Francis and during my 50-meter race I saw her on the ground, so I stopped, ran back and got her up and we both crossed the finish line together.
My Name is Eric Baumann, I have been doing Special Olympics since about 5th grade or 8 years old, and live the skills through Special Olympics.

Sometimes you can win without even being able to see the finish line. Jerry Gatton is a runner. He is determined and eager.
In addition to having an intellectual disability, he was born blind.
