On May 30th, Staff Teresa Gilli and Athlete, Paul Asaro visited the Heathcote Elementary School in Scarsdale to speak to the 3rd Grade Students about #SpecialOlympics. They do this yearly and enjoy visiting the schools. Seeing teachers, parents, and especially the students wanting to learn more about Special Olympics just warms our hearts.
We received an email today about their visit. We wanted to share with all of you. This program, Learning From Our Differences, is amazing. Now we know why Teresa and Paul enjoy doing this yearly:
Once again, thank you for the great presentation you and Paul gave yesterday. As you could probably tell from all the questions you received, the kids were very interested in learning more and extremely engaged.
This is from an email I received today from a 3rd grader’s mom: “he could not stop talking about yesterday’s presentation on the Special Olympics. It really made a strong impression on him!”
This is the kind of positive attitudes and messages we want to generate and reinforce with the Learning From Our Differences program. And we are so grateful for the support and participation of people like you and Paul, whose extraordinary commitment and openness are vital in making this possible.
Please share this with Paul and thank him too on behalf of the LFOD team and the entire Heathcote community.
All the best,
The day started off dreary and raining, but then the clouds parted and we had sun most of the afternoon. Truly another great day for our Athletes. This was the 42nd year holding this event at West Point – The U.S. Military Academy and we cannot thank them enough for their continued support, dedication and commitment they have for our Athletes.
Congratulations to ALL the Athletes! You are an inspiration to so many!

Thank you all so very much and congratulations to all who attended yesterday’s Westchester LETR!
Retired Captain of the Yonkers Police Department (and Co-Committee Chair) said “This was the best run in the 31 years I have been a part of this wonderful event.”.
We estimated having over 325 officers throughout the entire 20 Legs (Municipalities) in Westchester County participated in the run raising almost $10,000 for yesterday’s run. This is pretty amazing! We broke records all the way around. You should all be so very proud 🙂
We also had the first Athlete attend yesterday as well, Katy Sanchez. This was also her first time running an LETR and she managed to run over 8 miles yesterday. Great job Katy!
THANK YOU ALL AGAIN SO VERY MUCH!
