The World of Special Olympics

Loretta Claiborne was the last speaker at TEDxMidatlantic this past October — and they certainly saved the best for last!  “Be Fearless” was the theme of these TED talks where Loretta represented the more than 4 million FEARLESS athletes who are part of Special Olympics.  Her talk was moving, inspiring, eye-opening and challenged every person sitting in that auditorium.  I can confidently say, when she concluded her speech, not a heart was left unchanged.  See for yourself!

Note: A couple months earlier, Loretta was featured as part of The Case Foundation’s Be Fearless series on Special Olympics.  If you haven’t seen the series, you can check it out here: Loretta, Tim Harris (Special Olympics Nevada athlete), George Srour (Special Olympics volunteer) and Tim Shriver.
