Heidi is an athlete from Alberton Prince Edward Island, Canada. She has been involved with Special Olympics for the past 14 years. She has participated in golf, bowling, bocce and snowshoeing. But golf is her favorite sport.
She finds it is a privilege and her right to speak up for herself and be a voice for those who can’t speak for themselves.
Over the past few years she has had many leadership opportunities serving on different disabilities organizations boards and committees like People First of Canada PEI People, Special Olympics Canada Athletes Leadership Council and as part of the Global Athlete Leadership Council.
Heidi volunteers and visits seniors who live alone in the community. She also enjoys spending time with family and friends.
