On this edition of Eye on Oshkosh, host Cheryl Hentz discusses Special Olympics with Tommy Jaime, director of communications for Special Olympics Wisconsin; athlete Jarod Falk and his parents, Wendy and Chris Falk. As Special Olympics turns 50 years old the weekend after this show was filmed, the discussion centers on the organization as a whole, how those with disabilities are benefitted by participating in the program, how people can become involved with Special Olympics and why it’s important to donate to the organization. The discussion also focuses on Jarod, who recently participated in the USA Games and received a gold medal for his swimming ability; and his parents’ involvement in Special Olympics and why they believe so strongly in it.
