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."

Director at Large

Laurie McNally 

Favourite Special Olympics Moment: "The first competitive event my daughter attended was a swim meet in Montague and I was asked to be a timer at the last moment. I was over whelmed with how athletes, coaches, volunteers and parents cheered everyone on and the loudest cheers were for the athlete who was last in the pool. I cried most of the day, I cheered until I had no voice left and I felt so much happiness and pride for the athletes, coaches, volunteers and parents."

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.
