Nicole Nelson

Nicole NelsonNicole joined Special Olympics in 1998 and competes in gymnastics, floor hockey, and bocce.

To Nicole, Special Olympics is more than just a place to play sports. As Nicole puts it, "I like Special Olympics because it is good for your health, body, and heart, and you get to hang out with the best people."

Along with competing in sports, Nicole dances with the Hi-Tops. In 2011, she celebrated her 30 birthday by participating in "Over the Edge." Not only did she rappel down a 16-story building, but she raised more than $1,000 for Special Olympics.
