Jenny has been involved in Special Olympics for 17 years.

 For the majority of that time she has coached  Special Olympics Horowhenua swimming.  And she has been on the local committee for more than ten years, with many years as Secretary of the Club.  Jenny is now Chairperson of SO Horowhenua and Secretary for the Lower North Island Regional Council. Her contribution to Special Olympics is now mainly administration, fundraising and event management. Jenny has attended four National Summer Games in various roles and two World Games – one as a parent supporter.

 Jenny became involved in Special Olympics as she had a family member who joined as an athlete. Special Olympics has added another dimension to all our lives.  Jenny says that “we have a wonderful group of supportive families in the Horowhenua who have developed lifelong friendships, and we have met many other wonderful people from the SO family throughout NZ”.

 Jenny feels that she was privileged to be have been selected as part of the NZ Team to LA2015 and what an experience that was.  “To see our athletes grow, to see them achieve at a level beyond expectations, to see friendships form and the pride our athletes took in representing their country – how fortunate I feel to again be part of a Special Olympics New Zealand team” Jenny says.

 Jenny is looking forward to seeing the athletes in Abu Dhabi giving their very best and seeing the enormous pleasure they deservedly get from their achievements. 

 She is very proud to be part of Special Olympics – to assist athletes to have opportunities to participate not only in sport, but also in social and meaningful activities. Jenny loves our athletes showing the world how talented they are, and the sportmanship and support they show each other.
