Special Olympics Athlete and SO Maryland Digital Media Coordinator Adam Hays joins JR to discuss the "inclusion revolution" and share his own story about how a boy born with hydrocephalus (commonly referred to as "water on the brain") and who underwent more than 30 brain surgeries can go on to win two gold medals at the USA Games and represent all athletes as one of the final leg torch bearers at the Special Olympic World Games in Greece. When others have doubted Adam, he has proved them wrong by living a full life and achieving some of his wildest dreams.
