Meet Jennifer Allen, a superstar athlete from Guelph Wellington who has been involved with Special Olympics for an impressive 21 years! Jennifer participates in a variety of sports including 10-Pin Bowling, Athletics, Basketball, Floor Hockey, and Softball.
To Jennifer, Special Olympics means being able to compete in sports to the best of her ability without being judged. Her best memory so far has been representing Canada at the 2019 Special Olympics World Games in Dubai, a very proud moment for her. She looks forward to making new friends and having fun at Special Olympics events, as well as representing her country in her favourite sports.
Jennifer wants to give a big thank you to all the donors and supporters of Special Olympics who have helped make her dreams come true. Without their support, athletes like Jennifer wouldn't be able to achieve their goals and compete at the highest level. She also encourages them to come out and watch them play!
