Volunteers Seek to "Encourage and Inspire" Special Olympic Athletes

When I read the following in a local newspaper column regarding three athletes entered in a Special Olympics race, it was delightful to read: "I asked Mark (Special Olympics coach) for the names of the volunteers so I could include them in the article.  He said, 'Sorry, John...we don't provide names of volunteers.  They understand that they are here to encourage and inspire, not get their names in the news.'"
