THE SPECIAL OLYMPICS ATHLETE'S OATH: "LET ME WIN, BUT IF I CANNOT WIN, LET ME BE BRAVE IN THE ATTEMPT."
2016 Pennsylvania Miss Amazing Program
I would like to introduce you to Miss Amazing Inc. We are a nonprofit organization founded in Nebraska in 2007. Now in our 9th year we are operating in 30 states across the nation. Our mission is to build confidence and self-esteem in girls and women with disabilities. Our programs offer opportunities for ages 5-elderly in a supportive environment. The only cost to participate is 5 canned food items.
In 2015 we were honored to be a Special Event at the Special Olympics World Games in Los Angeles. Miss Amazing has been recognized by the governor of the state of Nebraska, Prudential Awards, HALO Awards, and top 30 of Loreal Women of Worth. Several national media programs have featured our work to include MSNBC, The Today Show, and Meredith Vieira Show.
The program is coming to Pennsylvania in 2016. The event will be held April 9, 2016 at Moravian College, Haupert Union Building. Our director is Amy Behrend and she can be reached at email@example.com or 920-740-3739.
All participants are awarded for their participation and six representatives are selected to represent their peers and the state during the year. This event is the perfect fit for all abilities. Supportive volunteers help participants throughout the event.
