Meet Tony …. Finding joy, confidence, and fulfillment on the playing field and in life …
Tony Thomas has been a competitor against the top Special Olympics athletes in the nation for flag football. He has been served by Evergreen’s Bowling Green, KY location for over 10 years.
Tony’s dedication and hard work earned him this amazing accomplishment. You allowed him to try. Your support has funded years of rides to and from practice, meals, and lodging for away games, and countless memories.
The Special Olympics has given Tony confidence to thrive on and off the field. He has worked at Sonic. When you ask Tony what he does at Sonic he doesn’t mince words. “Onion rings,” he says.
Tony is one of Evergreen’s star athletes. But your generosity has allowed hundreds of the individuals we serve to participate in Special Olympics programs in their communities. Without you, we could not provide rides to and from practice and competitions and put a cheering member of the Evergreen staff on the sidelines of their most important competitions and games. And even more importantly, you give confidence, better health, and improved social skills to all of those participating in Special Olympics programs.
