Bowling is For Everyone, too!


Brielle had her Special Olympics Winter Sports Banquet the other night. The family at our table asked how long Brielle had been bowling with Special Olympics.

I had to give it some thought before I could come up with the number of years. She’s bowled with Special Olympics when we lived in Texas, Ohio, and now in the Atlanta area. That’s a lot of places and a lot of years.

Nine years! She started the season after she first became eligible at the age of eight.

She bowled after she had Botox injections in her legs and was wearing a leg brace and cast on her foot.

She even bowled after she had hamstring and heel cord surgery and was using a wheelchair.

I did a post a few months ago about how baseball is for everyone. Bowling certainly is, too! It’s something our whole family can do together!
