This month’s volunteer of the month is Amy Knudsen! Amy Knudsen has been involved with Special Olympics Colorado as a swim coach since her freshman year at Cherry Creek High School. Nationally ranked in swimming, Amy now swims competitively at California Polytechnic State University. When asked about her passion for Special Olympics Colorado, she states:
“Volunteering makes me so excited because it doesn’t feel like volunteer work at all. I am privileged to go hang out with some of my best friends and spend more time in the water. There is so much to be learned from the passion, friendship, and work ethic of each and every athlete. I know I will be involved for many years to come!”
Amy has volunteered at Summer Games for the past three years and is planning on volunteering once again this year. Thank you, Amy, for all that you do for Special Olympics Colorado!
