We are immensely saddened by the loss of Jozef Kwiotek, Family Programme leader for Special Olympics Poland. Jozef passed away on Monday 11th of February following a short battle with cancer. Josef had amazing optimism, inner strength and life wisdom; he will be missed very much. Jozef was involved with Special Olympics Poland for over 20 years and was a wonderful ambassador for the movement. He was the true “heart” of the family programme, always happy and ready to help others in any way he could. This will be a huge loss for Special Olympics and for all who knew him. He is survived by his wife Grazyna and sons Slawek and Mariusz.
