“Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”
—Special Olympics Oath

My son Burt Baxley of Columbia and other athletes recite these words at each Special Olympic opening ceremony. The words tell so much about the courageous, hard-working athletes who also serve as great role models as they exemplify the Special Olympic oath. Burt loves the Special Olympic competition and has participated since he was eight. He doesn’t always win the gold, but he always gives a golden effort.
