  • Cathy Morris, of Redwood Falls, has been an integral volunteer and advocate for Special Olympics Minnesota (SOMN) since 2008. Cathy embodies the spirit of SOMN and, as a result, she will receive the Outstanding Spirit Award at SOMN’s 2013 Distinguished Service Awards.
     
    Cathy has been the Head of Delegation for Redwood Falls for the past seven years. Her positive attitude and drive to provide athletes opportunities to showcase their abilities have created premiere teams. A few years ago, Cathy also volunteered to be the Area 8 and Area 6 Administration Coordinator which has allowed her to help other teams increase athlete participation and grow their programs.
     
    She has also successfully implemented the first Young Athletes program in Redwood Falls Area schools. More than 70 children with and without intellectual disabilities participated over an eight week period.
     
    Cathy is always prepared to take on projects that will benefit Special Olympics. She has a talent for getting others involved in SOMN, whether it’s volunteering, coaching, competing or cheering. She will receive the award at the Distinguished Service Award Banquet on Saturday, Sept. 21 at Treasure Island Resort and Casino in Welch.
