The Special Olympics Canada Winter Games 2024 will be Rhonda's first National Games.
Donna Campbell is a long time volunteer with Special Olympics PEI. Donna first began volunteering 18 years ago as the Coordinator of the (former) West Prince Community Council.

Over her time with Special Olympics PEI Donna has been involved in numerous capacities. Donna is a former member of Special Olympics PEI's Board of Directors, recently concluding her term as Secretary. Ahead of the 2017 Special Olympics World Winter Games Donna was a Training Coach for one of PEI's Team Canada athletes. In additional to Snowshoe, Donna also coaches Athletics.
