Meet Blaine

Special Olympics Texas athlete Blaine Hardin can’t remember a time when he wasn’t involved. He says that participating in SOTX has made him more outgoing and helped him be more confident in communicating with others.

That confidence helped Blaine get a job at Rapid Refill Ink in McKinney and to travel to Washington, D.C. to meet with Congressional members and talk to them about issues important to Special Olympics athletes.

Without SOTX, Blaine says, “I would feel desperate. I wouldn’t be the same person I am with SOTX in my life. I would be bored, lonely and not as outgoing.”

As the year winds down, Blaine asks that you take a moment to consider a tax-deductible donation to his favorite cause:

“Without donations, I wouldn't have the opportunity to make friends, compete in sports and better myself. There wouldn't be the staff to make things work. SOTX is a vehicle for me to have fun, compete in sports and make friends.”

Won't you please give?  Donate now.
