Favourite Special Olympics Moment: "My favourite Special Olympics event is the awards ceremony. The excitement of the athletes is contagious and the respect they show each other is unparalleled. It is heartwarming to see the excitement that each nominated athlete shows and even more so to see how excited they all are for the winner of the award. It is hard to leave the event without a smile on your face."

Favourite Special Olympics Moment: "I always thought that the excitement that is created at the Pep Rallies prior to Team PEI leaving for National Games was exciting and unique.
