Snow Shoeing | 20+ years with SOAZ
2nd World Games Competition
Shalen has played on the City-League Softball Team for 15 years. She has won Gold, Silver and Bronze medals in Special Olympics Track and Field, Bocce Ball, Bowling and Snow Shoeing. She has competed in Basketball and Floor Hockey. She has gone to the World Games in North Carolina for Track and Field and her favorite part was meeting people from all over the world.
She is most excited to travel to another country, learn their customs, to teach them about her Native American Heritage, and to get to meet athletes from all over the world. She will make friends that she will have a lifetime. Special Olympics makes her very happy!
Shalen competes in different sports each season so the training and competing in different sports gets her in shape for the competition in March.
Outside of SOAZ, she works at the Quality Inn in Belmont, Arizona. She has done presentations at State and National Self-Advocacy groups. She loves reading, puzzles, movies, traveling, sight-seeing, hiking, walking, kayaking and camping.
