On April, 14 2011, I will be a volunteere for the special olympics. The reason I am doing that is because my little sister Catherine, is going to be in the Special Olympics. Because she is mentaly retarded. She has Down Syndrome. Thats is were you have 47 Chromosomes in stead of 46 like me and you. It makes her tounge bigger than her mouth so it sometimes hangs out of her mouth. So it slurs he speach, and also she doesnt act her age. She was born on December 25, 2002 and thats when we found out she had down syndrome. We were shocked but we were also happy. She is improving on her speech and she is super friendy. Another annual thing we do for her is participate in the Buddy Walk. Thats were we walk around a lake or pond and raise money for the association and do activities. At the Special Olympics you can go in a trailer and inside it is like a house and you can escape like if its a real fire and paint some clay items.
