Sandpoint, Idaho is once again being represented by their very best athletic Ambassadors when Eddie L. “Good As Gold” Williams and a small but outstanding team joined 700 Special Olympic athletes from across the state of Idaho in Boise for the summer games this weekend. Cycling Coach Val Laker has not stopped smiling since Robert Edwards garnered 2 Gold Medals and his cycling teammate, Missy Lake grabbed a Gold and a Silver medal at the State Games on Saturday.
Head Coaches Martina and Jim Couldry are delighted with the continued success of our Sandpoint, Idaho team and the overall 30% increase in participation that Idaho has experienced this year. Sandpoint, Idaho Special Olympics is under-funded and all financial support is deeply appreciated. Special Olympics in Sandpoint needs more coaches and volunteers and Martina would love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her and Jim Couldry at home when you have a chance to find our what opportunities are unmet at (208) 263-7356.
Watch for our Athletic Ambassadors in this year’s 4th of July parade on Saturday! They should be returning to Sandpoint sometime today!
