Life Changing event in Aspen

By Chris Bautista

Me and Shirleen at Hannah Teters reception

I honestly don't think this event could have gone any better in my favor. Not only did I get paired up with Shirleen, a talented Special Olympics athlete, I got paired up with a new best friend. We came together in Aspen to celebrate the announcement that Hannah Teter is the newest Special Olympics Global Ambassador. Perfect Sense Digital was a sponsor for the event. Shirleen and I literally held hands throughout the whole day. It was fantastic. When we weren't holding hands it was us high fiving after a run down the mountain or giving each other a great big hug when we took a huge turn without falling on our faces. Shirleen has changed my life. As soon as I got into work today I sent her a picture of my desk to let her see where I work cause she was so happy that PSD supports her and her fellow athletes.
