“Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.” — Special Olympics Oath
Christina Campbell has performed dance routines before hundreds of spectators. She has spoken to an audience of 2,000 people. And in 2007, at age 19, she traveled to China to compete at the Special Olympics. She came home with four silver medals and a gold.
It’s hard to believe that Campbell used to be quiet, timid and withdrawn. An intellectual disability made learning difficult for her. But then the Special Olympics changed her life.
