Going For The Gold! USA Games Wrap-up

Special Olympics Seattle USA Games July 2018

Our very own Frannie Ronan, grade 3, took home 2 Silver Medals and 2 Bronze medals in Gymnastics at this summer’s Special Olympics USA Games held here in Seattle in early July.

The youngest of over 4000 athletes entered in the competitions, she quickly won the hearts of all in attendance during the week-long spectacle.   Frannie spread a powerful message of love with Special Olympics CEO Tim Shriver during the Opening Ceremonies at Husky Stadium.  The event was broadcast live to the entire country over the ESPN and ABC network.

St. Madeleine’s was a leader in joining forces with over 1,000 volunteers from the Archdiocese of Seattle who supported the multiple activities and events held as all were able to experience the JOY of the Games.
