Special Olympics has given Jenny Hall the confidence to try new activities willingly. Her involvement has given her a huge sense of pride. She has made wonderful friends and visited places she never could have imagined. When she goes to World Games in less than a week with the Special Olympics USA Women’s Basketball team, she will be able to add Los Angeles to her list of places and names of many more new friends.

"I am very excited about it," says Hall, when asked about playing basketball for Special Olympics Team USA at the 2015 World Games.

"I hope Special Olympics keeps growing bigger," she adds, when asked about her hopes for the future of the organization. She credits it with helping her to make great friends, helping her be a good person and that Special Olympics has made her an athlete.

Hall loves parties and tries not to miss one! She is fun, loyal, thoughtful and shy and loves sports!
