Helen Brookes has been coaching Special Olympics New Zealand basketball athletes since 2005, and she says it has changed her life.
“Special Olympics has also has a great impact on the lives of the athletes I coach. Having been privileged enough to see how much, I spend a lot of time sharing my experiences with anyone who will listen. I always hope the word will spread to those whose lives could also be changed by being involved.
“I believe Kiwis could better understand the importance of the World Summer Games and its international significance.”
Is that the athletes love to learn new skills, celebrate what they achieve and are so accepting of everyone who wants to be a part of it.
