The family of Athlete Julie Boyle has been chosen as FAMILY OF THE YEAR for 2012. Led by Mom Linda, Julie’s brother and sister and their families, Julie is surrounded at every event by her supporting family! When Julie is swimming, they encourage her to keep moving towards the finish line. For bowling, they are always rooting for the “Strike”!
Julie has been involved with Special Olympics since she was a little girl. She started in roller skating with her sister, Suzanne. She also participates at the Track meet every year, starting when she was in Elementary School. Julie graduated from Bradford Area High School in 2005 and now works at Futures.
Julie’s nieces and nephews are involved in supporting Julie also. They are eager to help at the bowling lanes by volunteering to sell 50/50 tickets. Her family has always participated by bowling in our “roll for the Gold” fundraiser and even donated baked goods for our buffet. We are proud to have them associated with McKean County special Olympics and look forward to seeing them at many more events. Hats off to Julie’s Family!
