YUMA, Ariz. - In the face of adversity, it is easy to give up, but not for these special athletes. The participants involved in Special Olympics have made it a priority to strive through the face of adversity, today they were honored.
This breakfast brought athletes, advocates, and local law enforcement to honor men and women with disabilities in order to break the barrier and make an impact on society today.
Isabel Camacho, a local resident, and swimmer in the nonprofit shares. Camacho said, "This morning means a lot to me."
Camacho was diagnosed at a young age with cerebral palsy. Though this has made her life difficult, she does not use it as an excuse. She believes she can do anything that she sets her mind to.
CEO of SOAZ was also in attendance. Tim Martin made it a priority to voice his opinion about the Yuma community. He described Yuma in one word, inclusion. If there is one thing the community of Yuma can do well is bring about change with an open heart.
