Special Olympics Florida

Marci McAdams

Trainer and Games Management Team, Columbia County

Fourteen years ago I answered a call from our County Director.  He was looking for volunteers to help with our County Summer Games.  The moment I stepped on the field that day, I knew that it was my opportunity to give back to this amazing organization that offered opportunities to athletes that might not ever have an opportunity to participate in the sports they love.  

Why do I do what I do?  It’s the smiles on the faces of each and every athlete while their competing or receiving their awards.  Today I volunteer in awards for all county, area and state games and take great pride in the opportunity to provide area training for new coaches and the coaches who need recertification.

I am truly blessed to continue to be a part of Special Olympics Florida.
