Eunice Kennedy Shriver
Read more about the life and legacy of Eunice Kennedy Shriver at: http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/story?id=8276631
In June 1962, Eunice Kennedy Shriver started a day
camp for children with intellectual disabilities at her
because she was concerned about children with
intellectual disabilities having nowhere to play.
Using Camp Shriver as an example,
Shriver, who was head of the
and part of President Kennedy's Panel on Mental
Retardation, promoted the concept of involvement in
physical activity and competition opportunities for
people with intellectual disabilities. Camp Shriver
became an annual event, and the Kennedy
Foundation (of which Shriver was executive
vice president) gave grants to universities,
recreation departments and
community centers to hold similar camps.

"Amid the tumult of the summer of 1968 came an event the likes
of which the world had never seen: an Olympics for children
with intellectual disabilities. At that first Special Olympics,
founded by Eunice Kennedy Shriver, about 1,000
competitors participated, showing the
world they could fully participate in rituals of
childhood, and sparking a change in society's attitudes."
