Special Olympics is mourning the passing of Tali Kornhauser, family coordinator at Special Olympics Israel. She was a guiding force and inspiration for athletes and activists, family members and Unified teammates—and everyone else—in Israel, Europe and beyond. She was a decades-long champion of inclusion through sports, the arts, and in life.
Tali was a powerful and positive advocate on behalf of her daughter Lin, a Special Olympics bowler and golfer, and athletes all around the world. No words can convey our sadness at her loss. Instead, we will reflect on her spirit and passion for life—and for Special Olympics—with a photo slideshow through the years.
