Introducing this week’s athlete of the week, Tommy Shimoda! Tommy loves nothing more than to run to the park and play sports winter, spring, summer, and fall! If Mt. Greenwood Park and Special Olympics Chicago offers the opportunity for fun, Tommy is there.
Tommy has been very active in the programs and classes that Chicago Park District and Special Olympics Chicago/Special Children’s Charities have organized during the pandemic. His mom said “Everyone has been putting together the best opportunities to stay connected with friends and make new friends. The commitment that The Chicago Park District and Special Olympics Chicago has made to come up with creatively social distanced events has given Tommy a schedule filled with new and exciting adventures. And he has been enjoying staying connected with his Mt. Greenwood friends and taking classes where he meets new friends, coaches and chefs. Cooking, Competition and Crafts! Tommy is making the best of staying home and staying safe. Not to mention his newest hobby weaving potholders in every color and pattern.”
A huge thank you from Tommy and our family. We have all enjoyed the new adventures!
