Testimonials after Special Olympics 2018

From a Volunteer: 

The self confidence and joy I saw with your riders touched me deeply.

To have been the leader during the last event when Evie took gold made me cry.

I think I grew from this experience as much as your riders.

From a Rider's Family Member: 

We wanted to thank you so much for all your hard work!!  Justin had such an amazing time!   Thank you also for your patients with all my questions and concerns!  

We really all had a wonderful time and truly appreciate all you do!

Ivy Hill is the most amazing place with the kindest and most helpful people.  His instructor is absolutely amazing and her time and dedication with Justin have been an absolute blessing!!!

And you were right about Dante and Tyler, Justin loved them-- he said he now has friends!!!  Makes a mom's heart happy!!  He said he can't wait until next year!

So again, Thank you!


Our team of riders, coaches, volunteers and families descend on State College  each June with enthusiasm, professionalism and vibrant competitive spirit. We are proud of our riders and their determination, discipline and teamwork.
