“Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt”, is the Special Olympics athlete’s oath that was quoted by our ladies before the start of their Special Olympic Bowling Games on Saturday, September 17th.
The Special Olympics oath originated with Eunice Kennedy Shriver jotting down these words on the morning of July 20, 1968 — just ahead of the opening of the very first Special Olympics International Games. She recited them at a brief Opening Ceremony at Chicago’s Soldier Field before the start of competition.
The ladies were blessed to spend the day having a fabulous time and all received ribbons which they proudly showed to friends and family. Please pray for God’s continued blessings on our Protected Harbor home.
“I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”
