Empowering Families in Mexico

By Paola Martinelli

On May 25th, the first Families Meeting was hosted in downtown Cancún, México as one of the first actions for empowerment of families and community building. A presentation on Special Olympics and the different programs was done, including strategies and the integration of the committee. Also, a lecture on "New Vision for Disabilities" was given to enhance the development of families and communities. While parents participated in this meeting, our athletes and their siblings had fun activities with our coach, Mr. Jorge Reyes.
