The Right to be Healthy

By Ariel Ary

Special Olympics has changed my life in many ways. Special Olympics gave me the opportunity to compete as an athlete, to develop my leadership skills and to get different medical services. Thanks to Healthy Athletes at World Games in Korea, I received a new pair of glasses, and I had a tooth cleaning ("limpieza dental") service that I will continue to receive in my country every six months with the Special Olympics Costa Rican Healthy Athletes program. As human beings we have the right to be healthy in every area of our lives, and that's what Special Olympics is doing for us.
