My Special Olympic Bowling Experience


July 13, 2013 changed my life. I joined Special Olympics Bowling. That was my first game and it led me onto going every Saturday morning going to different bowling facilities and trying out their equipment and also be known as a "Saturday Challenger" through the Denver Parks and Recreation with an average of 143 in bowling, by bowling's end and a Bronze medal winner and proud of it for life >^..< Oh before I forget I had family in there too my brother-in-law Robert D. Vigil who helped me get in as well participated and claimed the gold.

About VIVIAN ELAINE VIGIL: I am Vivian Elaine Vigil. I am 45 years old happily married. I competed when I was little in Great Falls, Montana. I got to Denver, Colorado August 16,1979. I made a wish as I was younger to participate and my parents said no, but you all know what? as I grew older I defied their rules and I went on in my own life and competed and here we both are a gold medal and bronze medal winner each
