Special Olympics Texas athlete Christine Victory is bubbly and vivacious. She lights up the room when she enters and it’s emptier when she leaves. Her positive, can-do attitude is contagious. She signs her emails “Life treat you great if you think you are great yourself.”

Christine has been an SOTX athlete for 27 years and serves on the SOTX Board of Directors as an athlete representative. “Special Olympics lets me meet new people and make friends,” she says. “I love running, competing and giving speeches about SOTX!”

Christine credits her participation in sports with expanding her world: Through Special Olympics, she has traveled far and wide—to China and North Carolina to compete in the Special Olympics World Games, to Panama and twice to Washington, D.C., to meet with Congressional members and talk to them about issues important to Special Olympics athletes.

Please help us continue the work that allows Christine—and 44,153 other SOTX athletes—to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage and experience joy. Donate now.
