2014-10-30 10:43:44 - By: Maddie Hamburg, Mt. Horeb High School Senior
Club Unify got off to a strong start this school year with students gathering after school to plan for the homecoming parade. We played get-to-know-you games for our new club members, shared snacks and brainstormed ideas about our part of the parade. Our big goal was to stand out to the community so together, we decided to tie-dye T-shirts and wear them in the parade. The week before homecoming, we held another meeting after school and had a tie-dye party. It was a blast!

2014-10-15 14:24:37 - By: Christina Harris
When Henry was born in April 2012, little did I realize the kind of adventures he would get me into! We could tell early on that Henry would be a rough-housing, playing in the dirt, kind of boy. When we pick him up from day care, he is covered head to toe in dirt from playing outside. A day is not complete if he doesn’t wrestle with Daddy. Henry should be having all these adventures. But me? There is no chance I’m going to do something crazy like rappelling down the side of a building!

I had the privilege and honor these past couple of weekends to be asked to speak at the Leadership Conferences in Madison and Appleton.

One message was clear to me: we are all there for the same reason which is to help make the lives of the athletes who are served by Special Olympics Wisconsin better.
