Alpine Skiing Cousins Compete in State Winter Games for Over 20 Years

Alt Image
Alpine skiers and cousins Chris Hamilton and Keir Mallory have both been skiing at the Special Olympics Michigan State Winter Games for over 20 years. The cousins are from Area 21 (Oceana, Newaygo, and Muskegon Counties) and they love their time on the slopes. When asked why they love Special Olympics, both men agreed that it's a blast to get to know people at the state events and they love to have fun competing. Chris said "It's not about winning the gold but being a good sportsman. We should always help each other and keep a smile on our face." The two cousins are part of the 164 athletes that Area 21 serves. Chris and Keir plan on continuing participating in Special Olympics events for years to come.
