Read how your support changed the life of Summer Games athlete Mike Silvis:  

Fifteen years ago, Mike was a very shy young man. But one evening at Summer Games, he stood before 5,000 people and told them what Special Olympics means to him. Soon after, he began to take on leadership roles and became a floor hockey coach — all while staying involved as an athlete in basketball, bocce, golf, swimming, volleyball and bowling.

Now Mike spreads the word about Special Olympics to service groups and school aged children. Through Special Olympics, Mike and thousands of others have turned seeming shortcomings into a power of their own.

Mike is just one of nearly 20,000 athletes in Pennsylvania who deserve to experience the pride, courage, and joy of being a champion.
