Let's not forget that . . .

"Supporting" the longevity of

National Institution!

What is . . .

Let's start at the beginning!

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

home in Potomac, Maryland.[7]  She started this camp

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

Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. Foundation

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.

Must See Video:

"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."
