Youth Ambassadors Charting The Future For Special Olympics

Agents of Inclusion - February 22, 2023 - 22:45

Earlier this month the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl. The timing was serendipitous that JR would speak with two U.S. Youth Ambassadors who live in the Kansas City area -- Daniel Schnacker & Addison Willcott. The three discuss how Special Olympics and Unified Sports have shaped their lives. Daniel and Addison explain the power of words in both our everyday lives and in sports -- that they can either help build someone up or create further obstacles for them to overcome. Plus, they help get the message out about SpreadTheWord.Global and why now is the time to think about inclusion.Also, as discussed in the episode, you can follow Daniel on YouTube HERE.
