This Blog represents the senior capping project for Marist College seniors Erika Schmid and Joe Fitzhenry. While they are two entirely different organizations, we look to help spread awareness for the Paralympics and Special Olympics. We feel they both have an amazing message to send to the world and are not supported to the degree that they should. Please post any comments to provide us with any feedback, We would LOVE to hear from you!

  1. I am very glad that Erika was able to see the STRENGTH and Determination that these athletes demonstrate. What outstanding role models these individuals are! I am an advocate for any person with disabilities who strives to achieve what some may believe to be “the impossible!”

    • Erika, thank you for making us more aware, these athletes are true heros in more ways than one. Their plight and determination should never go unrecognized.

  2. I agree with Erika and would like to see these incredible and extraordinary athletes given more recognition for their abilities rather than disabilities. I hope after reading this, perceptions will change. Thanks Erika for sharing such a well written and informative blog about a very important issue.
