Special Olympics Colorado plane pull

I've been involved in Special Olympics since 1973, in track and field. Then when Unified Sports came in I played basketball and softball. It's hard to put my story into words because I had a long career. My goal is to teach our younger athletes about Special Olympics, what it was like for me.

About Rose Winkler: I'm an athlete, coach, volunteer, and Colorado Special Olympics Global Messenger. I also do community theatre.
