I have just spent one of the best weeks of my life in Adelaide as a carer for the NSW State Softball team.
I must admit to being a little apprehensive before going to Adelaide about the workload that would be involved in caring for 13 athletes.
Now I can honestly say that I was so busy having a great time that I barely noticed the work at all. And anyway, any caring to be done was a pleasure and a privilege!
I had such a brilliant week! These athletes have such brilliant senses of humour. They can find something to laugh about in any situation. I spent my week with the most genuine, talented, humerous and friendly group of people!
I highly recommend anyone take the opportunity to volunteer for Special Olympics. You will not regret it!
